|Project Summary||Project Information|
Our senior design project is to design and develop a microfluidic channel that will be able to sort cells given user input. Current methods of cell separation use biomarker tagging or centrifugal forces to separate cell types. However, both of these methods are costly and can have major impacts on the viability of the cells. Our device will use electric fields to manipulate and sort the cells without the need for expensive reagents or dangerously high shear forces.Currently, separating a co-culture of cells is a time and labor intensive process. This device will only require the operator to load the sample and set the target signal for the cells. The semi-automation reduces the need for intensive training and reduces the risk of human error.
This project will be used in a teaching lab environment to solidify the understanding of microfluidic techniques to separate cells and particles using dielectrophoresis.
