A DC Voltage Driven Flow-Through Electroporation Microchip
Differing with the traditional way to perform electroporation (EP) by using the DC electrical pulse, this paper proposes a new EP system by applying continuous DC voltages to generate proper EP electric field strengths utilizing the shape change of the channel. The fabrication of chip and set-up of system are clearly described and simulations also carried out utilizing CFD-ACE to study the electric field strength distribution and the time span when fluid passes through different electric field strengths. The fabrication of the proposed EP system is quite simple and low-cost.
