Summary

Schematic of the experiment.

An electrohydrodynamic method for separating small from giant unilamellar vesicles (GUVs) is presented in this paper. GUVs are fragile and common suspension separation techniques (e.g. centrifugation) are ineffective. Thus having an effective way to separate them is desirable. GUVs are of research interest in modeling biophysical systems since GUVs have similar size
