Abstract

We report a cell migration chip which can monitor chemotaxis at single cell resolution. The chip uses a cell capturing scheme based on the difference in hydrodynamic resistance between flow paths and cellular valving. A high capture rate over 94% is achieved by optimizing the geometry of capture sites and the length of serpentine structures. After capturing, cell migration experiments induced by chemotaxis were carried out using the fabricated platform, and the behavior of each single cell was successfully traced.
