A Student-Made Microfluidic Device for Electrophoretic Separation of Food Dyes
Teerasong, Saowapak; McClain, Robert L.
Journal of Chemical Education, v88 n4 p465-467 Apr 2011
We have developed an undergraduate laboratory activity to introduce students to microfluidics. In the activity, each student constructs their own microfluidic device using simple photolithographic techniques and then uses the device to separate a food dye mixture by electrophoresis. Dyes are used so that students are able to visually observe the separation. (Contains 4 figures.)
