Summary, in English

Deterministic lateral displacement (DLD) is a powerful bimodal separation scheme [1] based on regular obstacle arrays that in its basic embodiment sends particles in two different directions as a function of size. We add functionality to the technique by including gravitational forces, as a perturbation to particles transported by fluid flow, and as a way of transporting the particles through a stationary fluid.
