This focused meeting is being held outside the EU for the first time in its history, and is dedicated to exploring the science, engineering, and use of micro- to nanoscale acoustofluidics. Topics of interest: Nanoscale acoustofluidics [more...]

Acoustic Field Identifies Cancer Cells in Blood

May 28, 2016

Researchers at Lund University in Sweden and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the United States have developed a method to analyze and separate cells from the blood. Ultimately, the method, which goes under the name [more...]

Particles Move to the Beat of a Microfluidic Drum

May 9, 2016

A thin vibrating plate can organize microscopic particles within a liquid into different patterns, an effect like that observed in 18th century studies of musical instruments. Figure 1: (Top) When dark particles are placed on the back of a [more...]
