Researchers in Wheeler Lab Use Tiny Microrobots to 'Scoop up,' Transport and Deliver Cell Material

Donnelly Centre researchers have demonstrated a novel and non-invasive way to manipulate cells through microrobotics. One method of cell manipulation – moving small particles from one place to another – is through optoelectronic tweezers (OET), which use light patterns to directly interact with the object of interest. But there are limitations to the force that can be applied and speed in which the cellular material can be manipulated.
