Ideal for studying the complex properties of fluids
By monitoring the sample flow through a microfluidic contraction, the system measures the pressure upstream and downstream of a contraction using the MEMS pressure sensors and registers changes in the flow.

As depicted in the image, the fluid experiences shear flow in the straight channel and then an almost constant extension in the contraction zones.
