A Microfluidic Device with Microscale Wavy Pattern for Efficient Capturing of Circulating Tumor Cells
SUMMARYLehigh University has developed a wavy micropatterned microfluidic device for capturing circulating tumor cells from whole blood with high efficiency, selectivity and throughput. A capturing agent is immobilized on the substrate that can selectively capture circulating tumor cells while not interacting with other cells present in the whole b...

Opto-fluidic Nanoparticle Detector
SUMMARY Lehigh University has developed a device for optical detection and identification of nanoparticles in fluids in real time. The device can be used to analyze natural or synthetic particles. This technology can provide enhanced detection sensitivity. As an example, for 100 nm particles this method can have up to 1000 folds of enhancement in d...
