Electrochemical detection of single cancer and healthy cell collisions on a microelectrode

Author affiliations

Abstract

The electrochemical detection of single cancer cells and healthy cells is reported. Detection was achieved by monitoring the consumption of a single cell's contents upon its collisions with a microelectrode in the presence of surfactant. The electrochemical response between acute lymphoblastic lymphoma T-cells and healthy thymocytes differed by two orders of magnitude.
