Rapid electrokinetic patterning (REP) is an optoelectronic technique to manipulate particles. The number of particles can be adjusted by varying REP parameters such as frequency and voltage. An experimenter using REP may want more or fewer particles than are collected in a certain experiment. We use evolution of life curve to analysis REP system, and use nine screens to analysis system. Currently an experimenter may try to vary the experiment parameters to acquire the desired number of particles. This approach is cumbersome. Our goal is to set up an automatic REP system. It can help us to acquire the particles in an automated way. Therefore, we used subfield analysis to set up the automatic rapid electrokinetic pattern system.
