Abstract

Hydrodynamic forces due to the anisotropic shape of Drosophila embryo can rapidly orient it in an upright position. We used this effect and inertia hydrodynamics to design a microfluidics embryo trap array (META) that orders and vertically orients hundreds of embryos in a matter of minutes. Using META, we quantified morphogen gradients in the dorsoventral patterning system, a task that has been until now complicated by the need to manually orient individual embryos.
