Academy of Finland Project: Acoustically-actuated droplet microfluidics
In this project, we use ultrasonic standing waves to manipulate particles and drops in microfluidic devices. The objects are controlled in closed-loop by machine vision feedback. We target devices where all transducers and sensors are decoupled from the chip, so that the chip can be very cheap and disposable. The practical applications of such chips will be in point of care analytics and cell biology.
