Mechanized microfluidic device may impact future genetic research
24 December, 2006
Silicon microteeth that open and close like jaws have been developed at Sandia National Laboratories. The microjaws fit in a microchannel about one-third the width of a human hair (about 20 microns wide). When the jaws close, they trap a red blood cell, one of many being pumped through the microchannel like tomatoes spilled from a basket. The jaws, which open and close very rapidly, deform captured cells, and then, in less than the blink of an eye and almost playfully, let the little things loose. The blood cells travel on, regain their former shape and appear unharmed.
