Reversing a Capacitive Deionization Cell to Generate Acid for Lab-On-Chip Applications

Lab-on-a-chip technology works in the lab because of the larger than chip instrumentation, reagents, and sterile environment. In spite of this, we have many on-chip instruments from the pregnancy test to devices that can predict epileptic seizures before they happen. Our goal is to raise and lower pH on demand in a safe, reliable, and controllable manner.
