Microfluidic hydrodynamic trapping for single cell analysis: Mechanisms, Methods and Applications

Abstract

Development of hydrodynamic based microfluidic biochip is increasing over years. Based on the technique, cells or particles are trapped on a certain region for single cell analysis (SCA) without any application of external force fields like optical, electrical, magnetic or acoustic. In order to explore the insights of SCA at their natural state requires development of these techniques is highly essential. The research reports in this field indicate the vast potential that needs to be explored to develop biochip devices for commercial production. Hydrodynamic microfluidics facilitates passive lab on chip applications. This review gives an account of the recent updates in this field including its mechanisms, methods and applications.
