DropBot is an open-source Digital Microfluidic (DMF) automation system developed in the (http://microfluidics.utoronto.ca Wheeler Lab). It can be used to manipulate discrete droplets on the surface of an array of electrodes coated with a hydrophobic insulator. DMF has (http://microfluidics.utoronto.ca/research.php many applications) in the fields of biology and chemistry, including diagnostics, cell-based assays, and chemical synthesis. The DropBot features a modular and extensible design, an intuitive user interface, and is capable of driving up to 120 independent channels. It also provides dynamic impedance sensing which enables closed-loop control and real-time measurement of:* drop position* instantaneous drop velocity* electrostatic driving force
