(354i) Lateral Migration and Sorting of Elastic Capsules in Microfluidic Devices
AIChE Annual Meeting
Tuesday, October 30, 2018 - 2:45pm to 3:00pm
Based on our computational investigation, we propose an optimized microfluidic geometry that can be utilized for separation of capsules and cells with different size. The main advantage of the proposed geometry is its inexpensive fabrication without complicated inner structures, which eliminates the risk of channel clogging. In the talk, we will also describe the dynamics of the lateral migration of capsules and our cell sorting results.
