Abstract

A mechanical property of a cell, cell deformability, was measured by two consecutive constrictions in a microchannel by the electrical current measurement system. Thanks to the first constriction for cell size measurement, cell deformability was precisely measured considering a cell size itself and the effects of cytoskeleton-affecting drugs were detected within hundreds milliseconds.
