Paper Abstract

We use fully dynamic multiple-beam optical manipulators to directly control the activity on miniaturized laboratories that can be operated under a microscope. Scaling down conventional laboratory procedures to micron scale devices facilitates localized synthesis/analysis of chemicals and speeds-up biological assays while maintaining accuracy in the results. The switching mechanism in micro-fabricated fluidic channels and the control of pumps, valves, mixers, filters, separators and the like can be controlled using dynamic light handles. Moreover, continuous liquid flows can be used to transport particles throught the micro-channels and integrate a range of microfluidic components into fully functional devices.
