Abstract
Commonly, microfluidic devices are based on the movement of fluids. For molecular diagnostics assays which often include steps like PCR, this practically always involves a more or less complicated set of external pumps, valves and liquid controls. In the presented paper, we follow a different approach in which the fluid after sample introduction remains stationary and the main bioactive sample molecules are moved through a chain of reaction compartments which contain the different reagents necessary for the assay. The big advantage of this concept is the lack of any external fluid actuation/control. Results on sample carry-over experiments and complete assays will be given.
