  1. 1. Paraffin Actuators in Microfluidic Systems

    Författare :Marcus Lehto; Klas Hjort; Peter Woias; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Engineering physics; Paraffin; Actuators; Valve; Micropump; Teknisk fysik;

    Sammanfattning : There is a need for reliable valves and pumps in microfluidics. A good microactuator is the key for low cost and high performance of these components.Paraffin wax is a promising material to be used as actuator material as is can produce large forces and large strokes. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Microactuators for Powerful Pumps

    Författare :Roger Bodén; Klas Hjort; Jan-Åke Schweitz; Johan Nilsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; µTAS; chromatography; high pressure; lab-on-a-chip; microactuator; microdispenser; micropump; on-chip; paraffin; PCM; point-of-care; Engineering physics; Teknisk fysik;

    Sammanfattning : When paraffin wax melts it exhibits a large, relatively incompressible volume expansion. This can be used in microactuators for strong and large displacements, a rare combination among actuators. Furthermore, paraffin is inexpensive, inert and environmentally friendly, as well as easily processed and actuated. LÄS MER
