Portable microfluidic system for quantifying a population of cancer cells in suspension.
TecnolÃ³gico de Monterrey, Nuevo LeÃ³n, Mexico
This technology consists of a portable microfluidic system for quantifying a population of cancer cells in suspension by electrokinetic forces and surface plasmon resonance.
Primary Application Area: Medical Devices
Technology Development Status: Prototype
Technology Readiness Level: TRL 3
FIGURES OF MERIT
Value Proposition: The technology requires little amount of sample and reagent little processing time. They are disposable devices. Portability allows access to a larger market. In addition, it has 2 electrokinetic pumps (beginning and end), which make moving the sample through microchannels. The sample is injected with another solution. Patent pending MX/a/2013/015285
