To be updated Spring 07: The main objective of this project is to develop a nano- or microfluidic cell culture chip to enable the selective amplification of cancer cells in a physiological microenvironment. The completed platform has functions such as cancer cell separation, selective amplification of cancer cells, nanofluidic cell lysing devices, and harvesting cancer biomarkers. The BASIC for selective amplification of cancer cells will be effective devices for both research and clinical communities. The primary targets of this project are to standardize selective amplification method of cancer cells and harvesting cancer biomarkers on chip.
