Abstract: In this project, various microfluidic devices are designed for microparticles and cells separation. The dominant regions of dielectrophoresis among other AC Electrokinetic transport mechanisms are predicted. Flow behaviors of particles for each design parameter are modeled and simulated using COMSOL Multiphysics 4.3a software. Lab-on-a-chip devices having a Ti interdigitated electrode layer on a glass substrate and a PDMS microchannel are fabricated to investigate the most effective design solution for separating particles based on their sizes. Polystyrene particles with different diameters of 3.2 μm and 9.8 μm are used in our experiments and experiments with circulating tumor cells (CTCs) are in progress.
