Pinched Flow Fractionation

Application ID: 102171

This example simulates the separation of particles based on the size in a microchannel using the method of pinched flow fractionation. The microdevice has two inlets and multiple outlets where the velocity field of liquid flow is calculated using the Laminar Flow interface. Then the trajectories of injected particles are calculated using the Particle Tracing for Fluid Flow interface. Histograms are used to track the separation of the particles based on size and quantify the range of sizes of particles flowing out of each outlet.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
