Microfluidics—the manipulation of fluids on a microscopic scale— has made it possible to produce “lab-on-a-chip” devices that detect, for example, infectious agents like viruses in a single drop of blood. Now, NIBIB researchers have developed microfluidic fibers that can be stretched hundreds of feet--vastly improving the speed and precision of microfluidic analysis of biological fluids.

NIBIB's Hari Shroff and his colleague's work imaging the developing nematode is described in a Science technology feature on the latest in live-cell microscopy. The article highlights the lab's recent advance called triple-view selective plane illumination microscopy (triple-view SPIM), which creates more sensitive imaging at twice the speed, all for the cost of an aluminum-coated coverslip. Read the article in Science.
