We present a microfluidic cell sorter that is able to count, characterize and sort micrometer sized particles and cells. In addition to optical counting and characterization, also sorting is performed by optical forces. The device is optimized for simplicity. The microfluidic channels and optical waveguides that carry the illuminating, detecting and sorting light form a single integrated structure, all built from the same material in a single photopolymerization step.
