It is convenient to consider circuit analogies when modeling microfluidic chips: the reservoirs are comparable to electrical capacitors as they are storage components; the microchannels are equivalent to wires as they carry flows; the microvalves are analogous to electronic switches as they offer selectivity; and the micropumps are analogous to voltage or current sources as they move the flows.
