Project team Rohit Karnik and Jeffrey Karp with Suman Bose, Chia-Hua Lee, and Praveen Kumar Vemula

Non-invasive technique

This project will demonstrate the feasibility of a label-free, non-invasive technique of continuous-flow cell separation requiring minimal sample preparation. The non-invasive nature of the technology will present opportunities to address problems in separation of cells where subsequent viability is important. This could lead to inexpensive disposable products for diagnosis of diseases and monitoring of disease states and therapeutic responses.
