Abstract: Microfluidics is a multi-disciplinary field that deals with the behaviour, control and manipulation of sub-millilitre fluid volumes. It is proving to be a useful tool for biological studies, affording advantages such as reduced cost, faster reaction times and process-specific designs. Another advantage of microfluidics is that micron-sizes particles can be manipulated with great precision. A microfluidic device is being designed to facilitate the sorting and self-assembly of components of a biological light-controlled nano-machine. This paper discusses the proposed design of the microfluidic device
