Abstract

We report the design, fabrication, and testing of an electrostatic microvalve for portable integrated microfluidic devices. The valve operates with electrical potentials under 300 V and accommodates pressures as high as 10 kPa. The valves are utilized to direct pressure to pneumatic microvalves, which significantly reduces the ancillaries typically needed to operate the pneumatic actuators.
