Abstract
This paper presents an electro-kinetic platform that combines three DEP configurations based on printed circuit board (PCB) technology. These configurations are: traveling, rotation and levitation DEP. The strength and effectiveness of the generated electric field of traveling and levitation configurations are simulated using COMSOL Multiphysics ®. The proposed platform is experimentally tested using microbeads (Carboxyl Polystyrene particles) in order to evaluate its performance. Also, the efficiency and functionality of the proposed platform when subjected to different waveform of signals (sine wave, and square wave) are presented and discussed. Moreover, the proposed platform can be used to extract other features of the biological cells, such as capacitance and permittivity. © 2019
