Abstract

AC electrokinetics have played an important role in the advancement of BioMEMS research. Although the various AC electrokinetics methods offers a myriad of advantages in conducting bioparticle electrophysiology, the uptake of the technology has been limited only to research centres. One reason is due to the time-consuming procedures involved. This report documents the development of a programmable, multiple frequency signal generator that may be used in any AC electrokinetics experimental setup in conducting parallel electrophysiology assays. The development employs commercially available tools and components, which hopefully encourages the uptake of the various AC electrokinetics methods in conducting BioMEMS research.
