Abstract: We have developed a system to isolate rare cells from whole blood using commercially available components and simple microfluidics. We characterized the capture of MCF-7 cells spiked into whole human blood using this system to demonstrate that enrichment and enumeration studies give results similar to in situ surface-modified devices while reducing fabrication and operation complexity.
