Title (EN) MEMS PARTICLE SORTING ACTUATOR AND METHOD OF MANUFACTURE
(FR) ACTIONNEUR DE TRI DE PARTICULES SOUS FORME DE MEMS ET PROCÉDÉ DE FABRICATION DUDIT ACTIONNEUR
Abstract:
(EN) A MEMS-based system and a method are described for separating a target particle from the remainder of a fluid stream. The system makes use of a unique, microfabricated movable structure formed on a substrate, which moves in a rotary fashion about one or more fixed points, which are all located on one side of the axis of motion. The movable structure is actuated by a separate force-generating apparatus, which is entirely separate from the movable structure formed on its substrate. This allows the movable structure to be entirely submerged in the sample fluid.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un système basé sur un système microélectromécanique (MEMS) et un procédé pour séparer une particule cible du reste d'un flux de fluide. Le système comporte une structure mobile unique en son genre, microfabriquée, formée sur un substrat, qui se déplace de manière rotative autour d'un ou de plusieurs points fixes, tous situés d'un côté de l'axe de mouvement. La structure mobile est actionnée par un appareil de génération de force de séparation, qui est entièrement séparé de la structure mobile formée sur son substrat. Cela permet à la structure mobile d'être entièrement immergée dans l'échantillon de fluide.
