A micropump with spiral-type magnetic micromachine was fabricated. When a rotating magnetic field was applied, the machine rotated and pumped a surrounding liquid. We experimentally examined the basic properties of this pump. We found that the pressure and the flow rate could be controlled by the rotating frequency, and this pump could work under wide range kinematic viscosity. In addition, we proposed a disposable pump system using the machine. When a plate installed a fluid channel and the machine was set on a stage for generating a rotating magnetic field, the machine worked as the pump.
