Abstract

We report here design, fabrication and testing of parylene membrane filter device for capturing circulating tumor cell (CTC) from undiluted human peripheral blood. To our knowledge, this is the first micromachined membrane filter used for rare CTC detection. Even without much optimization, the device already demonstrates 89% recovery and 9 log10 enrichment and out-performs most current methods used in the field [1]. Moreover, less than 10 minutes are required for each sample separation, compared to current multistep processing needing > 1 hour.
