Abstract

Discrete, passive components are shown to provide directional and frequency-dependent control over nanoliter-scale volumes on microfluidic devices. Complex fluidic circuits such as low-pass filters, converters, timers, and bandpass filters are proven functional. Time-responses of such networks can be modulated independently of fluid properties, by varying individual component dimensions and materials.
