The UV wavelength region is of great interest in absorption spectroscopy, which is employed for chemical analysis, since many organic compounds absorb in only this region. Germanium-doped silica, which is often preferred as the waveguide core material in optical devices for telecommunication, cannot accommodate guidance below 400 nm, owing to the presence(More)
The integration of complete analyses systems "on chip" is one of the great potentials of microfabricated devices. In this study we present a new pressure-driven microfabricated fluorescent-activated cell sorter chip with advanced functional integration. Using this sorter, fluorescent latex beads are sorted from chicken red blood cells, achieving substantial(More)
Sealing of the flow channel is an important aspect during integration of microfluidic channels and optical waveguides. The uneven topography of many waveguide-fabrication techniques will lead to leakage of the fluid channels. Planarization methods such as chemical mechanical polishing or the etch-back technique are possible, but troublesome. We present a(More)
There is a critical need for high-speed multiparameter photophysical measurements of large libraries of fluorescent probe variants for imaging and biosensor development. We present a microfluidic flow cytometer that rapidly assays 10(4)-10(5) member cell-based fluorophore libraries, simultaneously measuring fluorescence lifetime and photobleaching.(More)
