Most visual screens based on fluorescent markers are currently limited in throughput and accuracy. Here we present the first genetic screen of a mutagenized population of C. elegans in a microfluidic device. Animal handling streamlined by a microfluidic device and intuitive control software enabled the identification of novel mutants and a large screening speed.
