I got some new microfluidic chips to play with today (courtesy of the Microfabrication Group at TKK). This must be cutting-edge research, since there's an article about using laminar flow cells for single molecule experiments in the latest issue of Nature Methods. I'm testing our custom-built pressure controller which controls the inlet and outlet pressures between 0 and 7 kPa with about 2 Pa resolution. There are three inlet channels (~40 um wide) with blue fluid in the top channel, clear fluid in the middle, and red fluid in the bottom channel. They all meet in the middle of the chip and there's a wider (120 um) outlet channel.
The video shows a sinusoidally modulated pressure applied to each of the input channels as well as varying the pressures manually between zero and maximum.
