Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This part of the Acoustofluidics tutorial series reviews applications in acoustic trapping of micron-sized particles and cells in microfluidic systems. Acoustic trapping enables non-invasive and non-contact immobilisation of cells and particles in microfluidic systems. Acoustic trapping has been used for reducing the time needed to create 3D cell clusters, enhance particle-based bioassays and facilitated interaction studies of both cells and particles. An area that is increasingly interesting is the use of acoustic trapping for enriching low concentration samples and the washing or fractioning of cell populations prior to sensitive detection methods (MALDI-MS, PCR etc.) The main focus of the review is systems where particles can be retained against a flow while applications in which particles are positioned in a stationary fluid will be addressed in part 21 of the Acoustofluidics tutorial series (M. Wiklund, S. Radel and J. J. Hawkes, Lab Chip, 2012, 12, ).
