Abstract

The numerical simulation of cell movement in a shear flow is performed to propose a new cell sorting method using a dumbbell model which describes non-spherical biological cells with center of gravity offset. A dumbbell is found to rotate or glide, depending on the center of gravity offset and the strength of shear flow. In rotating motion, the dumbbell rotates and falls vertically, accompanied by a periodical horizontal drift. In gliding motion, the dumbbell orients and glides in a fluid, where the gliding angle is determined by the center of gravity offset.
