Separation of microparticles and living cells are studied with computational and experimental methods. The flow behaviors of particles are modeled and simulated using COMSOL Multiphysics 4.3a software. Lab-on-a-chip devices having a Ti interdigitated electrode layer on a glass substrate and a PDMS microchannel are fabricated to investigate the most effective design for separating particles based on their sizes. Polystyrene particles in different diameters (3.2 mu m and 9.8 mu m) are used in our experiments and experiments with T-lymphocytes and B lymphoblasts are in progress.
