Abstract

Passive microfluidic networks have recently been introduced as a promising approach for realizing flexible and programmable droplet-based microfluidic devices that target various biomedical applications. For the practical realization of such networks controllable and reliable droplet generation, so-called Droplet on Demand (DoD), is crucial. For this purpose, we developed a novel, high-precision technique for generation of individual droplets of desired volumes, at prescribed times of emission and with precisely controlled droplet distances which enables performing highly flexible droplet generation protocols. We verify the proposed method through experiments, showing the successful generation of droplets of arbitrary volumes and distances.
