Gwynne D. Koch

In biological research or clinical applications, optical imaging typically is performed using large microscope systems with expensive optics. Now researchers at California Institute of Technology in Pasadena have developed a device that integrates optics and microfluidics on the same platform and offers resolution comparable to that of conventional microscopes. The instrument, called an optofluidic microscope, does not require bulky optical elements for imaging. It consists of an illumination source, a CCD sensor and a slanted linear array of apertures etched onto an opaque metal film...Read full article
