Silicon-based microfilters for whole blood cell separation
This paper reports on the comparison analysis of four main types of silicon-based microfilter for isolation of white blood cells (WBCs) from red blood cells (RBCs) in a given whole blood. TheExpand

Versatile label free biochip for the detection of circulating tumor cells from peripheral blood in cancer patients.
The isolation of circulating tumor cells (CTCs) using microfluidics is attractive as the flow conditions can be accurately manipulated to achieve an efficient separation. CTCs are rare events withinExpand

Digital microfluidics: Droplet based logic gates
The authors present microfluidic logic gates based on two-phase flows at low Reynold’s number. The presence and the absence of a dispersed phase liquid (slug) in a continuous phase liquid represent 1Expand

Thermally mediated droplet formation in microchannels
Precise dispensing of microdroplets is an important process for droplet-based microfluidics. The dropletformation by shear force between two immiscible fluids depends on their flow rates, theExpand
