Optofludic lab-on-chips are compact microsystems that allow the manipulation, the analysis and the imaging of cells with high throughput even at the single cell level. The optofluidic microscopes on chip here presented are fabricated by femtosecond laser micromachining followed by chemical etching. The technique is ideally suited for rapid prototyping and allows 3D geometries and perfect alignment between microfluidic and optical components networks. The devices have been validated on cancer cell lines by imaging in three dimensions both clusters of cells growing on spheres and single cells.
