Bead polymerization

Video showing polymerization of droplets containing polymer, photoinitiator, and mixtures of lanthanide nanocrystals into spectrally encoded beads within a microfluidic labyrinth.

Bead imaging and release

Video showing one-by-one release of beads from a serpentine microfluidic channel.  The goal here is to eventually sort the beads into downstream bins to do cool things.
