Title: Micro fluidic system for single molecule imaging

Abstract

Laminar flow of a carrier liquid and polymeric molecules through micro-channels is used to straighten the polymeric molecules and attach the straightened molecules to a wall of the micro-channel for subsequent treatment and analysis. Micro-channels can be manufactured using an elastic molding material. One micro-channel embodiment provides fluid flow using a standard laboratory centrifuge.
