The present work is intended to describe the functional aspects and working principles of special microfluidic structures applicable to dilute and transport real biologic sample (e.g. whole blood) to subsequent functional parts of the sample preparation system or the sensing areas of biosensors. According to the preliminary expectations the fluidic layouts consisted of different advanced chaotic mixer systems and fabricated in PDMS polymer. The performance of the fluidic structures was characterized by experimental methods and numerical modeling. The particle transport in the different mixer structures was visualized and the results were explained by simulation of the particle motion.
