Microfluidic device for cell identification and counting

The goal of the project is to develop a microfluidic device for cell identification and counting. We will start with developing Coulter counter on a microfluidic device and identify sizes of both particles and cells. Next, we will develop impedance spectroscopy to identify cells both by their size and contents. The eventual goal would be to develop a blood cell counter on the microfluidic platform. The project is primarily experimental in nature though some theoretical work may be expected. This is a collaborative project with Prof P Sunthar.
