Microfluidic and optical systems for the on-demand generation and manipulation of single femtoliter-volume aqueous droplets.

Abstract

This paper describes a fluidic and optical platform for the generation and manipulation of single femtoliter-volume aqueous droplets. Individual droplets were generated on-demand using a microfluidic chamber that confers environmental flow stability. Optical vortex traps were implemented to manipulate and transport the generated droplets, which have a lower… (More)
