Title (EN) HIGH-SPEED ON DEMAND DROPLET GENERATION AND SINGLE CELL ENCAPSULATION DRIVEN BY INDUCED CAVITATION
(FR) GÉNÉRATION DE GOUTTELETTES À HAUTE VITESSE SUR DEMANDE ET ENCAPSULATION DE CELLULE UNIQUE ENTRAÎNÉE PAR UNE CAVITATION INDUITE
Abstract: front page image
(EN) Methods and devices for the formation of droplets of a first fluid in a second fluid and the encapsulation of particles or cells within such droplets are disclosed. Impetus for droplet formation is provided by the creation of a transient bubble, which may be induced using a pulsed laser. Droplet volume and the frequency at which droplets are formed can be controlled by modulation of the pulsed laser. The disclosed methods and devices are particularly suitable for use in microfluidic devices.
(FR) L'invention concerne des procédés et des dispositifs permettant la formation de gouttelettes d'un premier fluide dans un second fluide et l'encapsulation de particules ou de cellules à l'intérieur desdites gouttelettes. La force d'impulsion pour la formation de gouttelettes est fournie par la création d'une bulle éphémère, qui peut être produite au moyen d'un laser à impulsion. Le volume des gouttelettes et la fréquence de formation des gouttelettes peuvent être commandés par la modulation du laser à impulsion. Les procédés et dispositifs selon l'invention sont particulièrement adaptés à être utilisés dans des dispositifs microfluidiques.
