Digital Biology: OpenDrops is a Microfluidics Platform for #DIYBio #Biohacking

Needing to isolate and manipulate fluids sometimes in the pico liter volume range, lab-on-a-chip solutions are key. However most commercial MEMS are expensive, and proprietary. In walks the OpenDrop microfluidics platform assembled using an Arduino Micro, tiny OLED display, ESP8266 WiFi module, and other common components. And it looks great too!

OpenDrop is a new design for an open source digital microfludics platform for research purposes. The device uses recent electro-wetting technology to control small droplets of liquids. Potential applications are lab on a chip devices for automating processes of digital biology. How ever the present design should also open the technology to other field and allow experimentation to find new applications. Including the field of art, music, games and education.
