High-Speed Imaging in Biomedical Microfluidic Applications

In our everyday world, many have the ability to capture high-quality video of an object (for example a baseball) soaring through the air at 1 metre/sec. On the microscale, however, imaging objects moving at that same speed is far more challenging. This is because capturing footage of speedy micro-objects often requires frame rates in the hundred of thousands and exposure times in the single-digit microsecond arena.

This case study discusses the use of high and ultra-high speed cameras along with the principles of microfluidic-flow physics and imaging…. read full case study on Biomedical Microfluidic
