Manipulation of fluids in a small volume is often a challenge in the field of Microfluidics. While many research groups have addressed this issue with robust methodologies, manipulating fluids remains a scope of study due to the ever-changing technology (Processing Tools) and increase in the demand for “Lab-On-a-Chip” devices in biological applications. This thesis peruses the flow pattern of the orthogonal electrode pattern and circular electrode providing, examples of the flow patterns and the process micromixing. Characteristics of a multifunctional system were demonstrated using orthogonal electrode and circular electrode patterned device. Conductivity of the fluids were chosen such they reflect perfect biological conditions to determine the working conditions of the proposed devices under different AC voltage and frequency levels. Experimental results were then compared with simulated results which were obtained using COMSOL simulation software.
