Application Microfluidic disposables for cellular and chemical detection (sometimes called "lab on a chip") are becoming popular as a way to simplify and speed medical analysis. The systems typically consist of a small (credit card sized) microfluidic device connected to a larger desktop-sized analysis unit. Micronics is developing a disposable total-analysis chip which can handle all of the analysis steps on a chip.

The new chips use a laminate design which permits construction of 3-dimensional microfluidic structures, such as, focusing channels for cell analysis. Micronics is using CFD for design and analysis of the focusing channels in order to determine the complete pressure and velocity fields and to predict the dimensions of the core stream.

The results and comparision with experiment are available in this pdf file.
