Automated pressure maintenance system for microfluidic lab-on-chip

The problem of controlling the flows of small volumes of liquids is a limiting factor for the operation of the microfluidic laboratory-on-a-chip in biomedical devices of the new generation. The article describes the current state of development in the field of microfluidic technologies. A classification of the physical effects underlying the flow control systems of microfluidic laboratories-on-a-chip is presented. A pressure maintenance system with an accuracy of no worse than ±1 mbar has been developed, which is one of the main blocks of control systems for microfluidic laboratories-on-a-chip. A two-fold improvement in the accuracy of maintaining the pressure of the developed system in comparison with commercial analogues of leading world manufacturers has been experimentally confirmed.
