Kirbylab develops continuous-flow microdevice for sorting particles

The Cornell Micro/Nanofluidics group has developed a continuous-flow microdevice for sorting particles, as reported recently in Analytical Chemistry.  This microdevice employs DC-biased AC fields combines with coherently patterned microdevices to manipulate particles according to their dielectrophoretic mobility.  This device shows the potential to be used as a rapid screen to identify the electrical phenotype of mutated microbes.  For more information, see our web pages on DEP and particle processing, or contact Ben Hawkins.
