Microfluidics Particle Sorting Using Gravity

Print version Email story Tweet story
Application Microfluidic particle sorting has applications in diagnostics, chemical and biological analyses, food and chemical processing as well as environmental assessment.

In a previous Flow Science blog article, we discussed microfluidics particle sorting using hydrodynamics. Building on the same topic, we will talk about another method of micro particle sorting - this time, using gravity.

Ubiquitous gravity can be used for sorting micro particles in microfluidic devices. When gravity acts perpendicular to the motion of the particles, the particles settle down at a velocity dependent on their radius. Additionally, the motion of the particles is influenced by the hydrodynamic effects originating from the difference between the density of the particles, the density of the fluid and the viscosity of the fluid.
