We report on the development of a curved microfluidic channel that allows rapid and continuous size-based rare tumor cell separation from blood in a label-free manner by exploiting the hydrodynamic effects. The separated tumor cells are trapped and enriched on an integrated polycarbonate filter glued on top of the outlet reservoir of microchannels. CK19 mRNA of MCF-7 cells are detected by loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP).
