  6. DEVELOPMENT OF A STOPPED-FLOW CYTOMETER

    SBC: Cyto Fluidics Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED SBIR PHASE I EFFORT IS TO DESIGN, DEVELOP, AND EVALUATE A STOPPED-FLOW SORTING CYTOMETER. THIS SYSTEM WILLBE BASED ON CYTO FLUIDICS' PATENTED "FLUID TRANSISTOR" WHICH ALLOWS MICROFABRICATION OF FLUID CONTROL VALVES IN SIZES AND DENSITIES AT THE LIMITS OF CURRENT LITHOGRAPHIC METHODS (2 UM). IN THE PROPOSED STUDY, CFI WILL TEST THE FEASIBILITY OF UTILIZING THIS NEW TECHNOLOGY TO CREATE ...
