Abstract

The present invention provides a microfluidic system comprising at least one microchannel (IS) having an inner wall Q (17). The microfluidic system comprises attached to the inner wall (17) of the at least one microchannel (IS) a plurality of ciliary M actuator elements (lOa-d) and at least one floating current wire (14a-d) present in the at least one microchannel (IS) for applying a o magnetic field to the plurality of ciliary actuator elements (lOa-d) for changing their shape and/or orientation. The present invention > also provides a method for the manufacturing of such micro fluidic systems and to a method for controlling a fluid flow through a ~ microchannel (IS) of such a micro fluidic system.
