Abstract: Cell sorting for disease diagnostics is often achieved by fluorescence based identification of specific markers. However, in lung cancer diagnostics, cytological analysis of pleural fluids is not always reliable and immunofluorescence essays demand for specific sample preparation. Hence, this paper addresses the development of a microfluidic device for lung cancer diagnostics which infers on the potential of a diagnosis based on analysing the cell deformability (stiffness) that alters the rheological properties and consequently the flow characteristics. Cell deformability will be induced by external actuation. Electrowetting is used to transport the samples in an open configuration system using microdroplets. Effects of the test chip configuration, sample physico-chemical properties and potential adsorption mechanisms are discussed. Wettability plays here a vital role in the sample transport and in the diagnostic method to be tested. Hence, an innovative approach is presented, the 3D Laser Scanning Fluorescence Confocal Microscopy (3D-LSCFM) to provide a detailed reconstruction of the surface topology at the liquid-solid interface region thus allowing contact angles measurement with high spatial resolution.
