We report three dimensional (3D) rotational (ROT) electric field simulation generated by a biochip to levitate and rotate micron sized bovine cell or a neutrally charged spherical particle. Main goal of this research is to obtain controlled object rotation in yaw, pitch and roll axes for the purpose of automation of enucleation process during bovine cloning. Finite element analysis (FEA) results of rotating electric fields are analyzed for the determination of DEP torque on the cell. This also serves as a necessary tool to determine the dielectric spectrum properties of cells for biologists.
