An Integrated Microfluidic Dielectrophoretic (DEP) Cell Fractionation System
ASME 3rd International Conference on Microchannels and Minichannels, Part B cont'd
In this article we report on a planar miniaturized dielectrophoretic (DEP) microfluidic device developed for the purpose of continuous fractionation and purification of sample suspensions of microscopic particles or biological cells, employing specially shaped nonuniform (isomotive) electric fields. The device integrates three fully functional and distinct sub-units consisting of 1) sheath and sample injection ports, arranged to achieve hydrodynamic focusing of the cell stream; 2) the DEPdoi:10.1115/icmm2005-75062 fatcat:ygf7jj5m2ngjvbiwbikvnykhji
