Microfluidic Device Pulls Exosomes from Blood to Test for Cancer
Feb 28, 2019 @ 16:44

"At the University of Kansas, scientists have now developed a microfluidic device that features nano-scale patterning, which is able to pull out exosomes from blood plasma and identify whether they carry a cancer biomarker. The nano-pattern within the device resembles a fish bone, and it’s produced via a self-assembly chemical process. The fish bone pattern selectively pushes exosomes right against an electronic chip, which senses the presence of the exosomes."
