Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Isolating target particles of biological samples as a complex mixture is of fundamental importance in clinical and biomedical applications. Conventional separation methods are well established, but restrictive due to operational complexity and large size. Recent technical advances of microfluidic devices for separation provide new capabilities for accurate and fast separation of a small number of particles. We herein review hydrophoretic separation as a representative principle for size separation, comparing its advantages and disadvantages with other methods.
