A general strategy for controlling particle movement across streams would enable new capabilities in single-cell analysis, solid-phase reaction control, and biophysics research. Transferring cells across streams is difficult to achieve in a well-controlled manner, since it requires precise control of fluid flow along with external force fields or precisely manufactured mechanical structures. Herein a strategy is introduced for particle transfer based on passive inertial lift forces and shifts… CONTINUE READING
