Hydrodynamic deformation reveals two coupled modes/time scales of red blood cell relaxation

Soft objects in flow

Understanding the behavior of red blood cells in shear flow is highly relevant as their viscoelastic properties change in several diseases, e.g. malaria. Lipid Vesicles serve as ideal model systems.

Braunmüller et al., 2010


Magnetic manipulation and drug delivery

We investigate smart drug delivery systems inspired by microfluidics: controlled fabrication of ultrasmall liquid volumes, positioning and mixing by superparamagnetic bead manipulation.

Franke et al., 2009


Acoustics: Droplet & cell sorting (Biochips)

We are able to control and manipulate gel or emulsion droplets as well as living cells in microchannels at high rates by acoustic streaming. This technology ist highly prospective for lab-on-a-chip applications.
