In this paper miniaturized disposable micro/nanofluidic components applicable to bio chip, chemical analyzer and biomedical monitoring system, such as blood analysis, micro dosing system and cell experiment, etc are reported. This system includes various microfluidic components including a micropump, micromixer, DNA purification chip and single-cell assay chip. For low voltage and low power operation, a surface tension-driven micropump is presented, as well as a micromixer, which was implemented using MEMS technology, for efficient liquid mixing is also introduced. As bio-reactors, DNA purification and single-cell assay devices, for the extraction of pure DNA from liquid mixture or blood and for cellular engineering or high-throughput screening, respectively, are presented.
