New microfluidic device for isolating cells

Ian Y. Wong, PhD (Damon Runyon-Merck Fellow ‘10-‘13) of Massachusetts General Hospital, Cambridge, and colleagues, developed a new microfluidic device that can isolate specific cells faster and more accurately than existing devices. These new devices could potentially be applied to the isolation of cancer cells from patient blood samples for use in diagnostics and personalized medicine. The study was published in Biophysical Journal
