Acoustofluidic devices have been demonstrated effectively for liquid manipulation functionalities. Likewise, electromagnetic metamaterials have been employed as highly sensitive and wireless sensors. In this work, we introduced a new design combining the concepts of acoustofluidics and electromagnetic metamaterials on a single device realised on a flexible PVDF substrate. We characterise the operation of the device at acoustic and microwave frequencies. The device can be used in wearable biosensors with integrated liquid sampling and continuous wireless sensing capabilities.
