Abstract

We present next generation microfluidic deformability cytometry (NG-DC) capable of analyzing single-cell deformability close to real-time and in a fully automated manner at 2,000 cells/s. NG-DC is comprised of four processes: (1) Cell injection: cell suspensions are injected into a microchannel through a pressure controller, (2) Cell alignment and spacing: randomly incoming cells form a singlestream with controlled spacing by fluid inertia, (3) Cell stretch: cells deforms upon collision at a T-junction, and (4) Data processing: images of cell elongation motion are captured, analyzed, and displayed close to real-time. Through NG-DC, various cancer cell lines have been analyzed.
