Development of a microfluidic tool for understanding whole cell algal cultures

Abstract:

This project focuses on the development, characterisation and use of a microfluidic tool to study cells in suspension, and the motility of cells. This microfluidic tool is designed to have a low convective flow, so transport is dominated by diffusion, which allows a 2D concentration gradient to be maintained and manipulated, and cells to swim without advection.

The rheology of the whole cell cultures was measured and found to shear thinning. Bubbles rising through the fluid was mo...
