The dynamics of the acoustic streaming and the acoustic positioning performance in an ultrasound-actuated multiwell microplate are investigated by two different ultrasonic frequency actuation schemes: Frequency-modulation and single- frequency actuation. Our results show a significant decrease in size of the field of view when using frequencymodulation compared to single-frequency actuation, which can be used for improving the scanning time for 3D highresolution confocal microscopy by almost one order of magnitude. Furthermore, in the ultrasound-actuated multi-well microplate the high-voltage acoustic streaming show a complex time and temperature dependence and could gain stability by the use of temperature control.
