Combining dielectrophoresis and computer vision for precise and fully automated single-cell handling and analysis†
With the advent of single-cell technologies comes the necessity for efficient protocols to process single cells. We combine dielectrophoresis with open source computer vision programming to automatically control the trajectories of single cells inside a microfluidic device. Using real-time image analysis, individual cells are automatically selected, isolated and spatially arranged.
