Publication in Biomicrofluidics on High-throughput sorting of drops in microfluidic chips

In the recent article by Arjen Pit, we show the sorting of picoliter droplets by use of insulated electrodes below the microchannel. Maximum rates of 1200 droplets per second are reported. In the article we explain the design criterions used for optimizing the sorting speeds, and we also give analytical estimates of the electrostatic and hydrodynamic forces that are exerted on the droplets.
