Fully-integrated microoptofluidic devices for single cell analysis and manipulation fabricated by femtosecond laser
We design and fabricate by femtosecond laser micromachining fully integrated microoptofluidic devices where microchannels are interfaced with optical waveguides. Possible devices are: optical traps or stretchers for single cells; lab-on-chip integrating fluorescence detection and single cell sorting by optical forces; etc. The extreme flexibility of our fabrication technique allows the realization of integrated, miniaturized, portable devices and opens up new scenarios in the field of lab-on-chip optofluidics, in particular for cytofluorimetry and fluorescence cell sorting.
