Abstract

Here we developed a microfluidic device that is simple in concept, yet capable of generating linear and non-linear concentration gradients, such as parabolic and exponential profiles, by only modulating fluid flow rates. The proposed design is a simple network of minimal number of channels when com-pared to other devices in the literature. Given the simplicity of the device, it is easy to fabricate, reliable to operate, and potentially easy to scale up.
