Cilia are microscopic finger-like cell-surface organelles possessed by a great many eukaryotic organisms, including humans, whose purposes include generating local fluid movements via rhythmic whip-like beating and environmental sensing. Despite intense research efforts since their discovery by van Leeuwenhoek in the 1670's, several key questions r...

... They have been studying artificial cilia's properties in microfluidic applications such as microsensors, microrobots, light, particle manipulation, droplet antifouling surfaces, selfcleaning microfluidic mixing, and microfluidic pumping. The microfluidic channel was used by Mayne and Toonder [24] to test the ability of magnetic cilia in fluid mixing and bacterium collection. ...
