Get your popcorn. Engineers and virologists have a new way to watch viral infections go down.
The technique uses microfluidics — the submillimeter control of fluids within a precise, geometric structure. On what is basically a tricked-out microscope slide, chemical engineers from Michigan Technological University have been able to manipulate viruses in a microfluidic device using electric fields.
The study, published this summer in Langmuir, looks at…
