dc.description.abstractPolymerase-chain-Reaction (PCR) is a thermal cycling (repeated heating and cooling of PCR solution) process for DNA amplification. PCR is the key ingredient in many biomedical applications. One key feature for the success of the PCR is to control the temperature of the solution precisely at the desired temperature levels required for the PCR in a cyclic manner. Microfluidics offers a great advantage over conventional techniques since minute amounts of PCR solution can be heated and cooled with a high rate in a controlled manner. In this study, a microfluidic platform has been proposed for continuous-flow PCR. The microfluidic device consists of a spiral channel on a glass wafer with integrated chromium microheaters. Sub-micron thick microheaters are deposited beneath the micro-channels to facilitate localized heating. The microfluidic device is modeled using COMSOL MultiphysicsR . The fabrication procedure of the device is also discussed and future research directions are addressed. With its compact design, the proposed system can easily be coupled with an integrated microfluidic device to be used in biomedical applications. Copyright © 2013 by ASME.en_US
