Current research activities on the development of a system for transport and manipulation of biological cells with microrobots are described. If single cells in liquid are to be placed on a grid or sorted by cell type, having a system that can automatically lift, transport and release cells can significantly speed up such a tedious task. Therefore, a system is being developed that can automatically sort different cells by transporting them to different repositories. A method to recognise different types of cells is also being developed. The system consists of several components; a motorised inverted microscope, several different microrobots and a software architecture to control the whole cell manipulation workstation and to provide a user interface.
