Enridgement and Manipulation of Microorganisms

Oct 2016: In collaboration with IBA Heiligenstadt e.V. GeSiM developed a customized MicCell to investigate microorganisms in drinking water. This MicCell comprises three fluidic channels. Cell manipulation is achieved by interdigital electrodes with sizes from 20…100 Micrometers. We embedded up to 12 different IDEs for

  • Dielectrophoretic enridgement
  • Pulsation based perforation of cell membranes
  • Measurement of conductivity changes
