Microfluidic ”lab on chip” devices offer fascinating opportunities for fundamental research as well as real life applications. Handling fluids in micrometer sized channels allows for spatial and temporal control over experimental conditions at the size scale of cells and biomolecules. In our research group, we are employing magnetic forces to manipulate objects such as cells, particles and droplets inside microfluidic chips for applications in life sciences which enable fast analysis or fast processing with small volumes and minimal user input.
