Abstract

A plasma separating biochip is demonstrated using a capillary-driven contactless dielectrophoresis method with low voltage (~1 V) and high frequency induced electrostatics between red blood cells. The polarized red blood cells were aggregated and separated from plasma with a 69.8% volume separation and an 89.4% removal rate of red blood cells.
