Method For Splitting Droplets On Demand In Microfluidic Junction

Abstract

The invention relates to a method for splitting droplets on demand in a microfluidic junction, comprising the supply channel, the first drain channel and the second drain channel, characterised in that it comprises the following stages: a. delivering a droplet (1) to the said microfluidic junction (3) through the said supply channel (2) by means of a flow of continuous liquid through this channel (2) and the said first drain channel, b. stopping the flow in the said first drain channel and opening the flow in the said second drain channel until a fraction (7) of the said droplet (1) is present in the said second drain channel, c. resuming the flow in the said first drain channel and closing the flow in the said second drain channel, at least until the fraction (7) of the said droplet (1) being present in the said first drain channel separates from the rest of the droplet.
