Researchers Describe Microchip-like Device for Sorting, Studying Single Cells | GenomeWeb

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — Researchers in the US and Korea have devised a microchip-like device that they say can sort single particles and cells for individual analysis, as they reported in Nature Communications today.

This device, which they likened to a random access memory chip included in a computer, traps magnetic particles or cells that have been tagged with magnetic nanoparticles into compartments, isolating single cells in their own slots.
