Abstract

We present an optical trapping system combining individually addressable multiple laser traps with fluorescence spectroscopy. An in-line set of 64 near-IR laser diodes is used to create a line of individually addressable traps inside a microfluidic chip. This system is completed by an excitation/detection line for spectrally resolved fluorescence imaging of trapped particles. Highly parallel trapping in a constant flow (up to a few millimeters per second), fast particle handling rates (up to a few particles per second), and the possibility of recording fluorescence spectra of trapped objects lead to a performing bioanalytical platform, e.g., for highly parallel analysis and sorting.
