A highly effective pneumatic technique for mixing liquids on centrifugal microfluidic platforms is demonstrated and characterized. While a centrifugal platform is rotating, a stream of compressed gas is used to agitate liquids on the platform. This technique is implemented in a non-contact fashion and allows mixing without the need to alter the rotational frequency or direction of the centrifugal...
