Abstract

Drug cocktails have been popular for a variety of therapies of complicated diseases. Nevertheless, it is a tediously challenging task to optimize formulations, especially using traditional methods. Herein, a new integrated microfluidic system was demonstrated to dispense and mix a small amount of drug combination automatically. Based on the preliminary results on cell-level tests, it demonstrates low manual bias of drug formulations. It is envisioned that this automatic system could provide precise and high-throughput drug cocktail formulations and expedite the tedious drug screening process.
