Title: Polymer microparticle arrays from electrodynamically focused microdroplet streams

Abstract

We describe instrumentation for forming two-dimensional arrays of polymer microparticles produced from electrodynamically focused microdroplet streams. A single-stage linear quadrupole was used to focus droplets/particles onto silanated glass slides mounted on a computer-driven two-dimensional translation stage. Center-to-center position stability was on the order of 1 {mu}m. Applications to molecular sorting with polymer particles as host carriers are discussed. (c) 2000 American Institute of Physics.
