Signaller and Seeker Droplets

Publication Type: 
Refereed Conference Meeting Proceeding
Abstract: 
The ability to seek out the source of a chemical signal is vital for many life forms, from single-celled organisms, such as white blood cells (which are able to seek out pathogens due to the chemical messages they release), to complex communities, such as beehives (which require individual units of bees to respond to a chemical signal in order to perform specific tasks). Inspired by these natural examples, herein we have developed signaller and seeker droplets that are capable of finding each other in an open intricate fluidic network.
