The research article “Digital holography as 3D tracking tool for assessing acoustophoretic particle manipulation” has recently been published in Optics Express Journal. Congratulations to all the authors! By making use of the AFS™ chip, Cacace et al. (2017) investigated the integration of digital holography (DH) imaging in AFS™ devices to enable label-free 3D tracking of multiple cells and particles in a microfluidic environment.
In this paper, it is shown that the two technologies are indeed compatible. The 3D position of multiple micro-particles subjected to acoustic manipulation in the AFS™ microfluidic chip can be tracked using DH imaging, allowing the investigation of dynamic processes.
The AFS™ device is made available by LUMICKS. Interested in using the AFS™ in your experiments? Contact us for a demo or a quote.
