  3. 3. Acoustophoretic manipulation of sub-micron particles

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Biomedicinsk teknik

    Author : David van Assche; [2017]
    Keywords : Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Microchannel acoustophoresis is a technique which uses acoustically induced forces to translate particles in a microchannel. Its use in biological applications is increasing. Using acoustophoresis to precisely manipulate bioparticles such as yeast, blood cells and cancer cells gives the technique great potential. READ MORE
