Title (EN) ACOUSTIC WAVE SORTING
(FR) TRI D'ONDE ACOUSTIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) The present invention generally relates to the manipulation of species using acoustic waves such as surface acoustic waves. In some aspects, a channel such as a microfluidic channel may be provided having two or more outlets, and acoustic waves applied to species within the channel to determine which outlet the species is directed to. For instance, surface acoustic waves may be applied to a species such as a cell or a particle to deflect it from the channel into a groove or other portion that directs it to a different outlet. In some cases, surprisingly, this deflection of species may be in a different direction than the incident acoustic waves on the channel. Other embodiments of the present invention are generally directed to kits including such systems, techniques for producing such systems, or the like.
(FR) La présente invention se rapporte, de manière générale, à la manipulation d'espèces utilisant des ondes acoustiques telles que des ondes acoustiques de surface. Selon certains aspects, l'invention comprend un canal, tel qu'un canal microfluidique, qui comporte au moins deux orifices de sortie, et des ondes acoustiques sont appliquées à des espèces dans le canal pour déterminer vers quel orifice de sortie est dirigée l'espèce. Par exemple, des ondes acoustiques de surface peuvent être appliquées à une espèce, telle qu'une cellule ou une particule, pour la dévier depuis le canal dans une rainure ou une autre partie qui la dirige vers un autre orifice de sortie. Dans certains cas, de manière surprenante, cette déviation d'espèces peut se faire dans une direction différente de celle des ondes acoustiques incidentes sur le canal. D'autres modes de réalisation de la présente invention ont, de manière générale, pour objet des kits comprenant de tels systèmes, des techniques permettant de produire de tels systèmes, ou analogues.
