Abstract

We develop a microfluidic cell separation method which combined microfluidic devices and multifunctional Euglena. Multifunctional Euglena for cell separation was successfully prepared by the surface modification of Euglena cell membrane and its performances were confirmed. Mutlifunctional Euglena in the inlet attached cells, migrated inside the microchannel by phototaxis towards the outlet chamber, and brought specific cells to the outlet. After moving to the outlet, cells in the outlet were detached from Euglena. Since it is based on the unique characters of Euglena, our method needs only simple device and can deal with small to large amount variety kinds of samples including cells.
