Piezotechnology for Active Microfluidics in Medical Technology

Microfluidic technologies, often hidden within applications, are essential for supporting the functionality of devices and systems in medical technology.

Examples include nebulizers for aerosolization in respiratory disease therapy, reliable sample introduction and preparation in point-of-care diagnostic devices, and precise droplet generation in the production of patient-specific medications. Piezoelectric actuators play a central role in these and many other applications.

The diverse applications of piezoceramics are based on characteristics such as precision, extreme motion dynamics, long lifespan, compactness, and energy efficiency. With decades of experience, PI Ceramic excels in manufacturing actuators that achieve special effects in various forms like linear, bending, and tubular actuators.

„Piezo actuators are ideal for microfluidic applications, often enabling these applications in the first place,“ explains Dr. Patrick Pertsch, CEO of PI Ceramic. He emphasizes, „Piezotechnology is far from fully realized. Applications like single-cell handling with acoustic tweezers and biological tissue synthesis with ultrasound are examples of developing technologies.“

The new whitepaper from PI Ceramic explains the fundamentals of piezotechnology, outlines its potential applications in microfluidics, and discusses the technology’s limits.
