BACKGROUND Acoustophoresis has been utilized successfully in applications including cell trapping, focusing, and purification. One current limitation of acoustophoresis for cell sorting is the reliance on the inherent physical properties of cells (e.g., compressibility, density) instead of selecting cells based upon biologically relevant surface-presenting(More)
This report describes the development of elastomeric capture microparticles (ECμPs) and their use with acoustophoretic separation to perform microparticle assays via flow cytometry.We have developed simple methods to form ECμPs by cross-linking droplets of common commercially available silicone precursors in suspension followed by surface functionalization(More)
Processes for micropatterning protein arrays on inorganic substrates have gained attention in the development of biosensors and clinical diagnostics. This study demonstrates a chemically selective method based on photolithographic deposition of gold patterns with the subsequent attachment of functionalized alkanethiols via molecular self-assembly. Selective(More)
