|Title:||Simple device for rare cell capture from whole blood|
|Published:||September 26, 2012|
|Abstract:||We have developed a system to isolate rare cells from whole blood using commercially available components and simple microfluidics that can provide biologists with the capabilities of the monolithic devices. We characterized the capture of MCF-7 cells spiked into whole human blood to demonstrate that enrichment and even enumeration studies are possible, and enabling engineers and biologists access to this technology.|
