Dielectrophoresis Based 3D‐Focusing of Micro‐Scale Entities in Microfluidic Devices
3D focusing of microscale entities is a prerequisite for separation of microscale entities in microfluidic devices. A new approach based on dielectrophoresis for 3D focusing of microscale entities in microfluidic devices is proposed and mathematically modeled. The electrode configuration consists of multiple pairs of planar interdigitated transducer electrodes located on either side of the bottom surface of the microchannel. The model predicts that the device can 3D focus microscale entities at any location along the width of the microchannel. The model is useful for designers as it accounts for the influence of all geometric and operating parameters. See article by Alnaimat et al
Mechanical Property Characterization of Hundreds of Single Nuclei Based on Microfluidic Constriction Channel
This paper presents a microfluidic system encompassing a constriction channel for the mechanical characterization of single nuclei continuously. In this work, nuclei of cells were isolated and aspirated into the constriction channel where the passage time of nuclei was obtained as an indicator of nuclear mechanical properties. More specifically, the use of the presented method for quantifying the nuclei isolated from SW620 and A549 cancer cells was demonstrated. Results showed that the proposed method was able to characterize the mechanical properties of hundreds of nuclei with higher throughput than conventional approaches (e.g., micropipette aspiration and atomic force microscopy).
