Syringe Based Automated Fluid Infusion System for Surface Plasmon Resonance Microfluidic Application
This paper presents the design, implementation and working of a syringe based automated fluid infusion system integrated with microchannel platforms for lab-on-a-chip application. Polymer based microchannels are fabricated and adhered to the silver coated glass substrates to direct the flow of the liquid at rates down to the value of 60 µL/min. The fluid infusion system integrated with the microfluidic platforms accounts for the precise and accurate monitoring of fluids at the micro-level presenting a scope for study of surface plasmon resonance based bio-sensing application.
