Abstract

A biological seeding particle approach for μ-PIV measurements of a fluid flow provoked by microorganisms is presented. Results obtained with yeast cells and milk as tracer particles are compared. The use of milk enables more detailed visualisation and analysis of the fluid flow at higher magnifications.
