Combined Circuit/Device Modeling and Simulation
of Integrated Microfluidic Systems
Aveek N. Chatterjee and N. R. Aluru, Member, IEEE
Abstract--A combined circuit/device model for the analysis of
integrated microfluidic systems is presented. The complete model
of an integrated microfluidic device incorporates modeling of flu-
idic transport, chemical reaction, reagent mixing, and separation.
The fluidic flow is generated by an applied electrical field or by a
combined electrical field and pressure gradient. In the proposed
circuit/device model, the fluidic network has been represented by
a circuit model and the functional units of the -TAS (micro Total
Analysis System) have been represented by appropriate device
models. We demonstrate the integration of the circuit and the
device models by using an example, where the output from the
fluidic transport module serves as the input for the other modules
such as mixing, chemical reaction and separation. The combined
circuit/device model can be used for analysis and design of entire
microfluidic systems with very little computational expense, while
maintaining the desired level of accuracy. [1237]
