Paper Abstract

Micro-nano robotic manipulation is one of the promising methods for the treatment of biological cell instead of human handling due to its non-skill dependent, high throughput, and high repeatability. Integration of the microfluidic chip and robotics based on MEMS technology is key challenge for biomedical innovations. In addition to the advantage of environmental control by microfluidic chip, robot enables physical operation to the cell with high throughput. A high power, high precision and high speed microrobot actuated by permanent magnets are introduced and designed for cell handling, cutting, and stimulation in a microfluidic chip.
