Title (EN) DIELECTROPHORESIS DEVICES AND METHODS THEREFOR
(FR) DISPOSITIFS ET PROCÉDÉS DE DIÉLECTROPHORÈSE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Devices and methods for performing dielectrophoresis are described. The devices contain a sample channel which is separated by physical barriers from electrode channels which receive electrodes. The devices and methods may be used for the separation and analysis of particles in solution, including the separation and isolation of cells of a specific type. As the electrodes do not make contact with the sample, electrode fouling is avoided and sample integrity is better maintained.
(FR)L'invention concerne des dispositifs et des procédés de diélectrophorèse. Les dispositifs contiennent un canal d'échantillon qui est séparé par des barrières physiques de canaux d'électrodes qui reçoivent des électrodes. Les dispositifs et procédés peuvent être utilisés pour la séparation et l'analyse de particules en solution, notamment la séparation et l'isolement de cellules d'un type spécifique. Comme les électrodes n'entrent pas en contact avec l'échantillon, leur encrassement est évité, et l'intégrité de l'échantillon est mieux conservée.
