Description

Description

The present project investigates the performance of a microfluidic droplet generator device using ANSYS Fluent. Microfluidic droplet generator devices are specifically used in biomedical and bio-engineering fields. Clinicians or scientist are seeking after a method to analyze biological entities away from their natural habitat and in vitro.

This product is the second chapter of the VOF Multiphase Model Training Course.

However, separating biological entities is a sensitive task and must be done with extreme care. Due to the dimensions of these biological entities, the separation process is done using microfluidic separation devices. The microfluidic droplet generator is universally used to create droplets in which biological entities are trapped. These droplets can be analyzed away from the rest of the sample under a microscope.

The geometry is designed in ANSYS Design Modeler software.

In addition, an unstructured mesh grid is generated using ANSYS Meshing software. As a result, 10,441 cells were generated.

Microfluidic droplet generator Methodology

In this project, the multiphase VOF model is used to simulate the two phases of water and oil (buffers such as PBS can be used instead of water, and biological flows such as blood, etc. can be used instead of oil in real biological applications).

Surface tension modeling along wall adhesion is enabled to prevent the oil flow crawling toward the water inlet boundary and ensure the generation of detached droplets. Patching option is exploited to lessen the computational time needed for the oil flow to fill the respective inlet section.

Conclusion

In this project droplet generation inside a microfluidic device is investigated. By changing the flow inlet velocity for the two existing phases, the number and diameter of the droplets can be changed. This numerical simulation is beneficial for biological applications in which biological entities from the initial samples to be analyzed for further uses.

    This course sounds perfect for my thesis on bioengineering applications. How well does the simulated separation compare with the actual performance in a lab setting?

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      The simulation has been carefully configured to mimic the actual microfluidic droplet generation process. Due to the precise modeling of multiphase flow and considerations like surface tension and wall adhesion, the simulation results are quite representative of what can be expected in a laboratory setting. However, every physical experiment may have nuances, and results might vary slightly due to external factors that are challenging to include in simulations.

    This tutorial sounds amazing for biomedical applications. I’m curious, can this simulation also show the behavior of individual cells within the droplets?

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      Unfortunately, the simulation focuses only on the generation and behavior of the droplets themselves, not on individual cells. The VOF Multiphase Model simulates the interaction between water and oil but doesn‘t provide cell-level resolution. For simulating individual cell dynamics within droplets, additional methods or more specialized software might be necessary.

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

    I found the explanation on droplet generation very intriguing. Ca nyou tell me more about how the patching option improves the simulation process?

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      To improve the setup process and reduce computational time, the patching option pre-fills the oil phase in the assigned inlet area so that you don’t have to wait for oil to fill this area during the simulation run. This approach kick-starts the simulation with the initial condition closer to the desired steady state, allowing the droplet formation to be observed without having to simulate the initial filling transient period.

    How does the simulation ensure detached droplet formation and prevent oil flow from crawling towards the water inlet?

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      In this simulation, surface tension modeling along with wall adhesion properties are enabled. These settings help to create distinct boundary interactions between the oil and water phases, which ensures the formation of individual, detached droplets instead of having the oil phase crawl towards the water inlet.

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      In simulations of this nature, stringent measures are taken to ensure accuracy for sensitive biomedical applications. These would typically include verification of physical properties of the simulated fluids, resolution of the mesh to capture the important details of the flow, and validation of simulation results against empirical data or analytical solutions when available. Numerical schemes of high fidelity and boundary conditions mimicking the actual physical processes closely also contribute to ensuring the accuracy of the simulations.

      I’m glad you found the information helpful! Apart from the flow inlet velocity, you can adjust parameters such as phase density, surface tension between fluids, channel dimensions, and fluid viscosity to fine-tune the droplet generation process.

    The concept of separating biological entities with such precision is intriguing. How does the microfluidic droplet generator ensure that each droplet contains only one biological entity for analysis?

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      Unfortunately, we cannot provide specific details on cellular behavior within the droplets as it’s not covered in the information provided. However, the accuracy in separating biological entities in this microfluidic droplet generator simulation is generally ensured by precise control of the droplet size compared to the size of the biological entities and careful manipulation of the flow rates and fluid properties, ensuring that ideally one entity is encapsulated per droplet. However, the exact method would be defined based on the specifics of the device and the experimental setup used in the laboratory.
