Biosensors for immune cell analysis-A perspective.

Biomicrofluidics 2012 Jun 26;6(2):21301-2130113. Epub 2012 Apr 26.

Massively parallel analysis of single immune cells or small immune cell colonies for disease detection, drug screening, and antibody production represents a "killer app" for the rapidly maturing microfabrication and microfluidic technologies. In our view, microfabricated solid-phase and flow cytometry platforms of the future will be complete with biosensors and electrical/mechanical/optical actuators and will enable multi-parametric analysis of cell function, real-time detection of secreted signals, and facile retrieval of cells deemed interesting.
