11 February 2011 Improved corral trap fabrication and microfluidic device integration
Author Affiliations +
The corral trap is a novel, microscale device for user-controlled trapping of single fluorescent molecules and other nanoand microparticles in solution. This trapping method does not require particle monitoring for trap operation, has multiparticle trapping capabilities, and can be turned off at will to release the trapped particle(s). We present an improved fabrication method and describe the integration of the corral trap into a microfluidic device, which will further increase its versatility and expand its range of applications.
