Abstract

We present a method for high-throughput optofluidic particle analysis that provides both the morphological and chemical profiles of individual particles in a large heterogeneous population. This method is based on an integration of a time-stretch optical microscope with a submicrometer spatial resolution of 780 nm and a three-color fluorescence analyzer on top of an inertial-focusing microfluidic device. The integrated system can perform image- and fluorescence-based screening of particles with a high throughput of 10,000 particles/s, exceeding previously demonstrated imaging particle analyzers in terms of specificity without sacrificing throughput.
