Microfluidic devices increasingly play an important role in modern medical diagnostic testing processes. One of the key functions of the microfluidic chip is a mixing function which is the process of mixing a fluid sample with a buffer in a micromixer. This process is also known as a dilution process. Human serum dilution is part of the medical diagnostics. Another significant function of the microfluidic chip is to generate micro-droplets which can be developed further to become artificial cells by encapsulating biochemicals in micro-droplets. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is an engineering tool that is used to design dimensions of these little tiny labs on chips for precise flow control according to medical demands and purposes. This research work of CFD Research Lab at TGGS of KMUTNB is in collaboration with Siriraj Hospital, TMEC, Mahidol and KMITL.
