Abstract

We report degas-driven deterministic lateral displacement (DLD) for size-based particles enrichment and separation by using polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) gas solubility. Unlike conventional DLDs which normally require external pumping equipment, we have employed degas-driven flow of a PDMS device to infuse a sample solution into a DLD array. We have demonstrated DLD-based enrichment and separation of differently sized microbeads. Furthermore, separation of white blood cells (WBCs) and red blood cells (RBCs) in whole blood was also demonstrated.
