Abstract

In this study we investigate a simple and maneuverable method, called micro aquiform reaction-control capsule, of digital microfluidics to modulate a biochemical reaction with a ternary droplet collision on a wettability gradient surface. The experimental results show that the rate of chemical reaction inside the coalesced droplet is modulated by the collision angle and the droplet of varied viscosity in the first of the ternary droplet collisions. This study is a significant reference for the observation of cell-drug interaction.
