Microbead Trapping Array

Microbeads are used for biological diagnostics.  Microbead arrays are used to trap and observe miccrobeads as fluid containing bio-assays are flushed past the beads.

I started this project with the goal of adapting Dr. Sochol’s Lithography-based microbead arrays to multi-jet modeling.  The image above shows the most recent design with three bead traps and a rendering of three beads sitting in the traps.
