Vesicles are deformed into several different shapes by activating different combinations
of pixels
The hybrid integrated circuit/microfluidic chip is used to deform a vesicle
containing magnetic particles, shown in Fig. 2.10 [ 10 , 11 ]. The chip combines both
an array of electric pixels and an array of magnetic wires. The vesicle is first
trapped dielectrophoretically by activating the pixels below it, while a magnetic
field traps the iron oxide particle. The magnetic field maximum is moved away
from the vesicle, dragging the magnetic particle and elongating the vesicle. Once
