Microflow devices including microvalves, micropumps and microflow sensors fabricated by micromachining are reviewed from the point of view of the actuating principle and structures. Integration of microflow control devices and microflow sensors allowed very precise control of small flow. High performance liquid dosing microsystems and sophisticated chemical analysing microsystems were demonstrated by the combination of microflow devices and microsensors. Applications of microflow devices and systems are also introduced.
