DESIGN AND LOW COST IMPLEMENTATION OF DIGITAL MICROFLUIDIC BIOCHIP (140672)

DOI :

Abstract : An easy to develop and innovative platform for Digital Microfluidic Biochip is presented. In this method devices are formed by considering cost as a main factor. Relays are used as the switching devices,Atmel 89C51 is used as a controlling device and high voltage power supply which provides both PWM AC and DC voltage is built on a general purpose board. This system is able to apply and switch up to 700V both PWM AC and DC voltages. PCBs are designed with an inter - electrode gap of 500 micron. PCBs are designed and etched with an innovative method of making stickers of design,affixing and etching with very low cost. Wonder 555 adhesive tape is used as an insulating material to replace expensive material such as Parylene - C. Rain - X is used as a hydrophobic material to replace expensive Teflon - AF 1600. 1cSt Silicone Oil is used to reduce surface resistance..
