Electromanipulate Biological Cells with High Frequency Signals: a New Way to Characterize Cell Agressivity in the Frame of Cancer Treatment?

This talk will introduce emerging methods to characterize biological cells based on dielectrophoresis approaches translated to UHF frequency domain. And especially opportunities to use high frequency signals for discriminating intracellular features related to very aggressive cancer cells especially ones known to escape from standard chemo or radiotherapy treatments. It will be shown how to take benefit of the faculty of high frequencies, to penetrate into biological cells and non-invasively probe their content, combined with microfluidic Lab-On-Chip technology capabilities to enable easy cell individual micromanipulation, in order to promote alternative and label-free cell analysis techniques.
