Device user interface for Microdrop digital microfluidics (DMF) control software.

Project Description

dmf-device-ui

dmf-device-ui is a graphical user interface to control a digital microfluidics control system (such as the MicroDrop/DropBot system described in detail in [Fobel et al., Appl. Phys. Lett. 102, 193513 (2013)][2]).

If you use this software in work that you publish, please cite as appropriate.

Installation

## Automatic installation ##

The dmf-device-ui package is a dependency of the dmf_device_ui_plugin MicroDrop plugin, and will be installed automatically if the dmf_device_ui_plugin plugin is installed.

## Manual installation ##

pip install –find-links http://192.99.4.95/wheels –trusted-host 192.99.4.95 dmf-device-ui

The --find-links and --trusted-host are required to provide binary Gtk2 dependencies as wheels. Visit http://192.99.4.95/wheels to browse the contents.

The wheels server at 192.99.4.95 is maintained by Christian Fobel <christian@fobel.net>.

Usage

The dmf-device-ui GUI will be launched automatically from MicroDrop if the dmf_device_ui_plugin plugin is installed.

## Actuate electrodes ##

![Actuate electrodes][actuate-electrodes]

## Draw route ##

## Adjust layer alpha ##

The alpha/opacity of each layer (e.g., connections, electrode shapes, labels) can be adjusted independently.
