A combined circuit-device model for the analysis of integrated microfluidic system is presented. The complete model of an integrated microfluidic device incorporates modeling of the fluidic transport, chemical reaction, reagent mixing and separation. The microfluidic flow can be caused by an applied electrical potential gradient and/or a pressure gradient. In the proposed compact model, the fluidic network has been modeled by a circuit based representation and the other modules of the µ-TAS have been represented by a device model. As an example, we present the modeling and simulation of a lab-on-chip.
