This presentation describes microfluidic technologies and fluorescent nanomaterials that we have developed for studying single cells. Using microfluidics and aliquot sorting, we were able to isolate a single target cell of interest (e.g. circulating tumor cells or fetal cells) out of a background of billions of blood cells with over 95% efficiency. And with our fluorescent nanomaterials, we can perform highly multiplexed analysis of single cells at rates of thousands per second.
