Interrogating Cancer at the Single Cell Level with Hybrid Sensor Chip
|Title:||Interrogating Cancer at the Single Cell Level with Hybrid Sensor Chip|
Researchers at the MIT-Harvard Center of Cancer Nanotechnology Excellence (CCNE) have developed a hybrid microfluidic/semiconductor chip for single cell analysis. Integrating microfabricated Hall sensors and microfluidic networks, the chip can accurately detect individual, magnetically-labeled cells directly in unprocessed specimens. The image shows a prototype device consisting of a Hall-sensor substrate and a microfluidic structure on top.
