TechConnect Innovation Program

A Wavy Micropatterned Microfluidic Device for Capturing Circulating Tumor Cells

Lehigh University, PA, United States

TECHNOLOGY SUMMARY

A microfluidic platform designed to capture circulating tumor cells with higher efficiency, selectivity, and throughput.

Primary Application Area: Biotech & Biological Sciences

Technology Development Status: Prototype

Technology Readiness Level: TRL 5

FIGURES OF MERIT

Value Proposition: We have a unique bilayer system and allow local chemical stimulation of endothelium layer that mimics a disease condition and study drug carrier targeting performance. We can create more realistic channel geometries that closely mimic in vivo blood vessel network.
