Abstract

Optical cell manipulation has become increasingly valuable in cell-based assays. In this paper, we demonstrate the translational and rotational manipulation of filamentous cells using multiple cooperative microrobots automatically driven by holographic optical tweezers. The photodamage of the cells due to direct irradiation of the laser beam can be effectively avoided. The proposed method will enable fruitful biomedical applications where precise cell manipulation and less photodamage are required.
