Abstract

In this paper we report a novel microfluidic chip that can measure the deformability of single cells by using impedance measurement. With human breast cells, we demonstrated that the deformability of single cells can be electrically monitored quantitatively using the proposed microfluidic chip. The chip realized on-chip aspiration to capture single cell and measure its deformability based on impedance measurement.
