Scanning probe microfluidic analysis
Scanning Probe Microfluidic Analysis Optically Trapped Microprobes

  • Viscosity is an important indicator of biopolymer concentration.

  • Flow analysis is important in development of microfluidic devices.

  • Method: Confocal phase sensitive detection of optical tweezer beam reflected from a trapped probe bead set in sinusoidal oscillation by the tweezer beam enables micrometer scale spatially resolved viscosity measurements at 10kHz data acquisition rates.

Viscosity image
Viscosity Image lags behind.

  • Viscosity distribution around A. pullulans imaged by raster scanning an optically trapped probe bead.

  • This blastospore has a halo of the polysaccharide pullulan around it. Note the viscosity gradient.


Flow field measurement
Flow field measurement lags behind.

  • An optically trapped microsphere is used as a probe for two-dimensional velocity field imaging using scanning optics.

  • A fluid viscosity map may be obtained simultaneously.

  • Calibration is based on a single length measurement only.

  • Applications are anticipated in the design of microfluidic devices.


Microfluidics
Microfluidics lags behind.

New microfluidic devices are being constantly developed. Their fluid dynamics need to be understood.

Use to study effects of photodynamic therapy on adhesive properties of cancer cells

Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) is frequently extremely effective in controlling the primary malignancy, but have also been associated with an increase in distant metastasis.

PDT, used as clinical cancer therapy worldwide, is a method in which photosensitizers (PS) are administered to tumor cells and are activated by light at the appropriate wavelength, where a combination of light, oxygen, and PS are toxic to tumors.

Conclusions
Conclusions in controlling the primary malignancy, but have also been associated with an increase in distant metastasis.

  • Our scanning confocal tweezers microscope can measure velocity and viscosity simultaneously.

  • Viscosity can be measured rapidly with microspheres on microscopic scale.

  • Absolute measurements are obtained in real time for the flow velocity with minimal calibration.

  • Results from the measurements of the flow shear in z suggest that this technique has the potential of mapping the full 3-D distribution of fluid flow and viscosity.
