Arbitrary and Simultaneous Control of Multiple Particles in Micro-Fluidic Systems (ISR IP)
ISR intellectual property available to license
Researchers in the Department of Aerospace Engineering, University of Maryland, envision being able to move, sort, and control the path of multiple cells at the same time on a micro-fluidic platform. This would enable the capabilities of a laser tweezer, a Coulter cell sorter, and electrophoretic sorting on a single platform. In addition, this technology will also allow the creation of directed cell to cell collisions simultaneously and for many cells to be able to sort uncharged particles or particles of equal charge. Moreover, this method is non-invasive.
