Characterization of Micropumps for Biomedical Applications

Y. Haik, J. Hendrix, M. Kilani, P. Galambus and C-J Chen
Florida State University, US

Keywords: Micropumps, Viscous

Abstract:
A novel class of micro pump was developed at the Biomagnetic Engineering Lab at Florida State University. The pump operates by utilizing the viscous effects that are dominant the micro scale and by spinning a disk that contains a spiral and is in close proximity to a bottom plate. The pumps are highly compatible with biological applications as the system does not use thermal actuation which could denature proteins. Initial steps to characterize the pump consisted mainly of the 2D solution of the flowfield. This paper outlines the secondary steps of characterization of this pump which includes internal resistance testing and CFD analysis.
