Lab on a Chip - Miniaturisation for Chemistry and Biology | Year: 2015
We reported here for the first time that triboelectric charges on PET sheets can be used to seal and control the flow rate in paper-based devices. The proposed method exhibits simplicity and low cost, provides reversible sealing and minimizes the effect of sample evaporation. © The Royal Society of Chemistry 2015.
