Simple modular systems for generation of droplets on demand

This report provides practical guidelines for the use of inexpensive electromagnetic valves characterized by large dead volumes (tens to hundreds of mL) for the generation of small (nL) droplets on demand in microfluidic chips. We analyze the role of the ratio of resistances and of the elastic capacitance of the fluidic connectors between the reservoir of the liquid, the valve and the microfluidic chip in the reliable and precise formation of micro droplets on demand. We also demonstrate and examine the use of conventional electromagnetic squeeze valves in the generation of small droplets on demand with a similar set of design rules.
