Patent Number: 6,310,309

Title: Methods of analysis/separation

Abstract: Particles are separated according to their dielectrophoretic characteristics and electrorotation characteristics by the use of a travelling wave separation in which they flow from a departure point at an inlet (18) towards at least two destinations at outlets (16, 20) and are deflected toward one or other outlet according to their characteristics by a travelling wave field set up on an array of electrodes, each electrode running generally in the direction of flow.
