Engineers create optoelectronic tweezers to round up cells, microparticles

...tting diode has been used to trap more than 10,000 microparticles at the same time," said Ming Wu, UC Berkeley professor of electrical engineering and computer sciences and principal investigator of the study. "Optoelectronic tweezers can produce instant microfluidic circuits without the need for sophisticated micr...

... pull, position, and twist up to about one hundred microparticles simultaneously," said Dufresne. "We will stimulate individual cells with precisely coordinated biochemical and mechanical signals to quantify their dynamic response. Using multiple probes together, we will be able to measure cooperative effects in ce...

MIT particles pave way for new bedside diagnostics

... and the corresponding target is quantified. The microparticles are inexpensive because they can be produced efficiently in a single step. The design of the particles also makes the scanning devices cheaper. With multiple distinct regions, the barcode can be read and the target quantified using a single fluoresce...
