Micronewton force-controlled manipulation of biomaterials using a monolithic MEMS microgripper with two-axis force feedback

Abstract

This paper presents the first demonstration of force-controlled micrograsping at the microNewton force level. The system manipulates highly deformable biomaterials (hydrogel microcapsules and biological cells) in an aqueous environment using a MEMS-based microgripper with integrated force feedback along two axes. The microgripper integrates an… (More)
