New approach to sorting cells

May 18, 2016

Microfluidic device distinguishes cells based on how they respond to acoustic vibrations.


A new cell-sorting device consists of a microfluidic channel that vibrates at a very high frequency. As cells flow through the channel, they are pushed to a certain position depending on how they interact with the acoustic forces generated by the vibration. Pictured is an example of the device.
