Paper Abstract

A continuous flow microfluidic cell separation platform has been designed and fabricated using femtosecond laser inscription. The device is a scalable and non-invasive cell separation mechanism aimed at separating human embryonic stem cells from differentiated cells based on the dissimilarities in their cytoskeletal elasticity. Successful demonstration of the device has been achieved using human leukemia cells the elasticity of which is similar to that of human embryonic stem cells.
