Microvalve for Fluidic Applications
Non-Confidential description of the invention
Invention relates to the field of valves for regulating the flow of one or more fluids through a fluid channel, and to a system of microfluidic device and microvalve for regulating the flow of fluid while restricting the direct contact of the microvalve with the fluid. It is a multipurpose microvalve which may be used to regulate the fluid flow through different microfluidic application. A single device may handle a flexible tube with a range of diameters and it also handles any tube material which is reasonably flexible.
