Electrowetting is a digital microfluidic technology that allows movement of fluid to enable rapid thermal cycling for fast time to result.
HOW ELECTROWETTING WORKS
Electrowetting uses electrical fields to directly manipulate discrete droplets on the surface of a hydrophobically coated printed circuit board (PCB). Droplets of sample and reagents are moved in a programmable fashion and can be efficiently transferred and transported within a network of contiguous electrodes. Other operations such as merging, splitting, dispensing and mixing of droplets can be performed using the same principles.
