- n. The technology of using the flows and pressures of fluids in sensing, control, and information-processing systems with no moving parts.
“Then the lasers are floated in a mini-lake of ethanol (which accounts for the word "fluidics" in the name) and moved into position by a patterned array of light from a computer-controlled projector, which they refer to as optoelectronic tweezers (OET).”
“On the engineering side, the Lynx prototype had a light source, a scanner, and fluidics—all the ingredients Solexa needed.”
“Potential Applications Grabbing and holding droplets could be useful in micro- fluidics; petal-inspired surface patterning could lend a fresh, misty sheen to everything from produce to artificial flowers and even fabric.”
“Optics are making stable measurements, fluidics have fed the E. coli, the bugs are growing well and GLOWING, temperature, pressure, and humidity are stable at the right values.”
“The core was open, like an exposed brain, its working synapses sparking photons up and down its length, its fluidics a marvel of imaginative engineering.”
“We are confident that IDEX-known as a global leader in the fluidics field across multiple platforms-is the ideal partner for Microfluidics.”
“Microfluidics' product and service offerings will enhance IDEX's micro fluidics and micro particle technology position.”
“LabSmith, Inc, developer of tools for science, including equipment for micro/nano-fluidics and other laboratory research, has partnered with Harvard Apparatus, a Harvard Bioscience company, to distribute its CapTite ™ microfluidic components through the new Harvard Apparatus”
“Harvard Apparatus's strong presence in laboratory fluidics for life sciences, particularly for cell biology and cell electrophysiology, meshes perfectly with LabSmith's expertise in controlling all aspects of microfluidic experimentation.”
