An Integrated Bubble Trap for Continuous Removal of Gas Bubbles from Microfluidic Chips
In this paper we present a miniature bubble trap for efficient removal of bubbles from microfluidic reactors. The new bubble trap has a 10 mm single chamber with posts of different diameters and has a chamber volume of 20 µL. The vacuum chamber situated above the bubble trap allows facile removal of traps. The system is versatile, built using soft lithography and can be readily used in microfluidic systems.
