In the Fraunhofer-funded IMAGO project, scientists from three different Fraunhofer Institutes (Fraunhofer IIS, IOF and IZI-BB) are working together with researchers from Charité Berlin on a microfluidic method in which the microscopic image information of individual cells flowing through a microchannel is captured and analyzed automatically. According to the separation criterion previously defined by the user, the system generates a sorting decision and precisely separates the target cells from the remaining cells by electrokinetic forces.
