Abstract
Circulating Tumor cells (CTCs) have perfuse into vasculature and circulate in the bloodstream. CTCs are captured from blood by using microfiltration devices. This novel, high throughput blood/plasma separator Lab on Chip (LOC) device has been designed and fabricated by combination of cross flow filtration and corrugated channel to trap CTCs and also to postpone the clogging process in the main channel thus, 1 µl plasma has been extracted from 5 µl of undiluted blood in 5 minutes with 100% puri...
