In recent years, there are many biological studies that require a use of microfluidic device in the experiment, one of the device used is dilution chip which it used to separate the concentration of the fluid intensity for many application. One of the application use the dilution chip is for cytochemical treatment. Thus, to separate the fluid intensity in the microfluidic chip, an infusion pump has been developed with an aim to drive fluid into the microfluidic device with different flow rate set. The flow rate set in the infusion pump is 0.5, 1 and 2 ml/min. The purpose of applying different flow rates used to test the efficiency of the dilution in microfluidic chip with different flow rates. The infusion pump system built by using Arduino as the main microcontroller to control the whole system operation including for both of infuse and diffuse process by using bipolar stepper motor and motorized linear slider to control the plunger movement.
