Helical Microswimmers Mimicking Bacterial Flagella


Our customers from the ETH Zurich evaluate the performance of helical microswimmers mimicking bacterial flagella in a scientific paper. The flagella have been fabricated by means of a Photonic Professional system and demonstrate the feasibility of using them to manipulate soft objects within a microfluidic enrivonment.
