Selective separation and isolation of microparticles or cells based on their biophysical properties has become an essential step in laboratory use [1]. Techniques include field flow fractionation [2], fluorescent and magnetic activated cell sorting [3], laser tweezers [4] and dielectrophoresis [5]. The latter technique uses a particle’s intrinsic properties to its advantage without altering the original structure or disrupting the viability of the cell which is highly attractive for cancer research.
