This paper reports on a novel impedance-based cytometer, which can detect and characterize sub-micrometer particles and cells passing through a microfluidic channel. The cytometer incorporates a resonator, which is constructed by means of a discrete inductor in series with the measurement electrodes in the microfluidic channel. The use of a resonator(More)
Single-cell impedance cytometry is an electrical analysis method, which has been used to count and discriminate cells on the basis of their dielectric properties. The method has several advantages, such as being label free and requiring minimal sample preparation. So far, however, it has been limited to measuring cell properties that are visible at low(More)
We present a microfluidic device, which enables single cells to be reliably trapped and cultivated while simultaneously being monitored by means of multifrequency electrical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) in the frequency range of 10 kHz-10 MHz. Polystyrene beads were employed to characterize the EIS performance inside the microfluidic device. The results(More)
ABSTRACT This paper reports on an improved method for characterizing single cells within a microfluidic channel, which combines the output of a Dynamic Vision Sensor camera with data from a differential impedance spectroscopy measurement. The combination of optical and impedance data allows the size, shape and position of the cells to be determined in(More)
