Photodegradable hydrogels for selective capture and release of Mammalian cells.

This paper describes the fabrication of capture surfaces for the specific capture and selective release of rare mammalian cells using photodegradable poly(ethylene glyocol) (PEG) hydrogels in microfluidic devices. Microfluidic devices have been shown to capture rare cells from complex fluids, such as blood, with better yield and purity than alternative… CONTINUE READING
