Microelectronics holds the promise to bring to biology the advantages of miniaturization for carrying out highly automated experiments, under software control, with increased speed and low cost. This paper describes an essential building block for this scenario: a method for the stable levitation and independent motion of microorganisms in a liquid and their precise displacement by means of an electronic programmable device.
