In microfludics, generally speaking, there are 3 types of flow; laminar, droplet, and digital. Laminar flow, is well-known in micro-sized channels due to Reynold's number calculation. Digital and droplet flow conditions are similar to each other but in digital manipulation of liquid in microfludics, embedded electrodes and hydrophobic surfaces are used to move, mix or seperate droplets of liquid samples individually. Laminar flow, provides parallel flowing of the liquid sample without direct mixing but with diffusion.
Serpentine mixing channel, increases the channel length to provide enough time for complete mixing and reaction. The high surface to volume ratio provides higher efficiency in applications.
This is a passive serpentine mixing channel and actuation of substrate liquid's flow requires a pumping system.
Serpentine mixing microfluidics is accepted by various scientific and industrial applications mainly due to its highly efficiency in synthesis reactions or others which can be:
--- Life Sciences: Pharmaceutical concentration gradient formation, Chemical synthesis and screening, ...
--- Parmaceutical Sciences: Pharmaceutical synthesis reactions, ...
--- Biotechnology: Microreactors, Therapeutical particle synthesis, Nanoparticle synthesis, ...
--- Diagnostic tech: Diagnostic devices for personalized medicine, novel biosensor research
--- Others: Chemical synthesis and screening, cosmetics, food industry, aerospace and more...

|X Width and Z Height of microchannels||300 micrometers|
|Z Height of PDMS chip||3.0 - 4.0 mm|
|Ports on top/edge||on Top|
|Number of ports||3 ports per device and 12 per chip|
|Pitch btw ports and edge-to-port||3 mm and 3.5 mm|
|Size / Shape of ports||2 mm / Circle|
|Suitable Connector Outer Diameter||2.0 - 2.5 mm|
|Layout of active ports||
|Pumping/Actuation||Flow and mixing of the liquids inside microchannels require low-pulsation flow.
Some high-quality syringe pumps and pressure pumps work well.
Peristaltic and piezoelectronic pumps may also be suitable but mind the possible relatively high pulsation.
|Fittings||All fittings in ufluidic.com are suitable with this chip. Any other connectors compatible with pitch and port size is also applicable. Reactive compability of the fittings is also important to be considered.|
|Chemicals||Depends on the application of researcher.|
|Visualisation||Epi-Fluorescent Microscopy is widely used together with microfluidic chips.
Other analysis techniques should be determined by user researchers for the experiments where optical changes inside chips do not occur.
These are some highly sited articles from literature. The chip designs are not identical but working is same in principle.
