MicroFluidics

Microfluidics devices typically use small scale structures to manipulate fluids and particles. They are very effective in separation and preparation of biological samples.

Simulation can be used to significantly speed up the development process.

 
 

Surface tension driven flows

We provide solutions to model surface tension flows quickly. This allows engineers to understand droplet formation, sloshing, slug flow and a wide variety of phenomena quickly.

 

Particle flow interaction

Particle control and separation are often essential in microfluidics. A variety of different particle models are available and they range from small and densely packed models to large and dispersed models.

We can put you on the right path and explain what is possible and what’s not. Particles (solid, liquid or gas) can greatly change the flow behavior, therefore, it is important to use the right model for your particular problem.

 

Optimization

Everyone wants to develop the best device possible. However, engineering is full or trade-offs and compromises. We use automatic parametric design exploration to quantify these trade-offs and help you find the optimal design.

Even if the most optimal design remains elusive, we can still gain a great deal of understanding.
