Forces in rotating disks are used to pump liquids, load pneumatic chambers, mix liquids, generate droplets etc. The idea is not new but nevertheless, new functionalities and the implementations of new applications are being introduced at high pace. Centrifugal microfluidics for miniaturization, automation and parallelization of biochemical workflows is attractive because no interfaces to pumps and valves are required, the artificial gravity field eliminates bubble problems and surface forces can be overcome for volumes down to the nanoliter range. In this talk I will give an overview on recently developed methods for efficient and robust layout of centrifugal microfluidics systems and I will discuss new implementations such as integrated nucleic acid analysis based on digital PCR.
