Measuring and moving cells with electric fields: applications in cancer and biofuels
ABSTRACT: Cancerous tumors shed cells into the bloodstream, and cancer cell capture can enable personalized treatment. Electric fields can help in two ways: first, to apply forces to capture cancer cells (dielectrophoresis), and second, to measure the cells' electrical properties (electrorotation). Using the second technique, we have shown that electrical properties for pancreatic cancer cell capture are robust. Algal oils are promising feedstocks for biodiesel. We used electrorotation to measure the changing electrical properties of algae as the cells accumulated (non-conductive) lipids...
