Microfluidic Device for the Separation of Non-Metastatic (MCF-7) and Non-Tumor (MCF-10A) Breast Cancer Cells Using AC Dielectrophoresis Ateeq ur Rehman1, Rahman S.

It has been hypothesized that, based on this difference in dielectric properties, the two populations can be separated for immunotherapy purposes. To support this, we model a microfluidic device to sort MCF-7 and MCF-10A cells.
