Georgia Tech Team Develops Automated Microfluidic System to Screen C. elegans | GenomeWeb
Investigators at the Georgia Institute of Technology have developed a microfluidic device that can automate and standardize the genetic screening of small, multicellular animals.
 
The system, which also includes software that can acquire and analyze the images and sort the organisms, could eventually enable researchers to more widely use these animals in drug discovery, according to a researcher involved in developing it.
