We study a model for cell sorting based in the presence of differential chemotactic sensitivities. The chemical waves which are responsible for the cell motion propagate along some spiral waves. We prove rigorously that cells with larger chemotactic sensitivity are trapped in a region close to the center of the spiral waves if these propagate along some archimedian spirals.
