Abstract

In this work, a novel splitable 3D parylene membrane filter was designed, fabricated and tested. Viable tumor cells can be captured and kept alive for at least 20 days. Due to the "gap trapping mechanism" and splitable feature, we can release and collect trapped tumor cells from device after filtration. Combination of high capture efficiency, high throughput, low cost and viable capture makes it a promising candidate for detection and further study of circulating tumor cells.
