—Our goal is to develop a new automatic blood cell counter that can detect a small amount of leukemia cells in the blood of patients. In this paper, we examine whether living blood cells can be separated by employing the dielectrophoresis (DEP). Leukocytes were separated from erythrocytes by dielectrophoresis at 60MHz, 10Vpp. Then BALL-1 (Human B-cell Acute(More)
—In this study, we present the methods of the particle separation by employing electrokinetic phenomena (dielectrophoresis (DEP) and traveling-wave electroosmosis (TWEO)) and the inclined gravity. The methods can separate particles of same sign DEP. However, it is very difficult to separate particles on a plane electrode. To cope with this problem, we(More)
The dielectrophoresis (DEP) is suitable for handling micro-/nano-particles or tubes, sometimes together with gravity and/or flow of liquids. Recently research works on applications of DEP to biochemical measurement of biological cells alive or dead. Mass-processing of clinical laboratory test will be led to Clinical Laboratory Automation. We made(More)
