Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0218785A1] According to the present invention, there is provided a micro-fluidic sensor system (6) including a micro-conduit (56) for carrying fluid therethrough having a flexible wall portion (18), at least one micro-fluidic actuator having a closed cavity, flexible mechanism defining a wall of the cavity (11) and flexible wall portion (18) of the micro-conduit for deflecting upon an application of pressure thereto, and expanding mechanism (14) disposed in the cavity for selectively expanding the cavity and thereby selectively flexing said expanding mechanism, and sensor mechanism in fluid communication with the micro-conduit for sensing the presence or absence of molecules. The present invention further provides for a micro-fluidic system for moving micro-fluid amounts including a micro-conduit and at least one micro-fluidic actuator in fluid communication with the micro-conduit.
