Robotic-Investigators for microorganisms in a microfluidic chip

Abstract

In this paper, we propose 3 degree-of-freedom dual-arm microrobot called Robotic-Investigator (RI) which enables manipulation and force sensing for microorganisms in a microfluidic chip. The untethered RI is actuated by permanent magnets. Therefore, the RI can supply mN order force to stimulate microorganisms with measuring the applied force. To develop the… (More)
