We are in the process of developing hybrid micro devices that utilize the flagellar motors of Escherichia coli cells as actuators. For the micro devices it is important that the flagellar motors be tethered at specific locations on a given substrate in order to maximize its performance as actuators. In this paper we present results that demonstrate an effective method for patterning the flagellar motor actuators onto a substrate material. We also present the first experimental data which discusses the performance of the actuator in a microfluidic pump.
