The design and production of sequencing and driver circuits, to operate a novel peristaltic micropump is integrated into a device with microfluidic reation chambers. The micro pump is used to pump a one microlitre droplet back and forth between the reaction chambers, to be used for Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR). The pump has been successfully used to move a droplet of water within the devices channels. An interformetric method for optimizing the pumps operation is introduced here.
