The design and assessment of a flexure-based parallel micromanipulator with two-degrees-of-freedom (2-DOF) for automatic cell injection is presented in this paper. The design and modeling of the micromanipulator are conducted by employing compliance matrix method. The dynamic modeling and analysis via Lagrange equation are conducted to improve the bandwidth of the mechanism. Both theoretical analysis and finite element analysis (FEA) results well validate the good performance of the micromanipulator which will be applied to practical cell manipulations.
