Investigation for the operation of an integrated peristaltic micropump

Husband, B., Bu, M., Apostolopoulos, V., Melvin, T. and Evans, A.G.R. (2003) Investigation for the operation of an integrated peristaltic micropump At 14th Micromechanics Europe Workshop, Netherlands. 02 - 04 Nov 2003.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


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.
