Abstract

We successfully demonstrate that DC dielectrophoresis can be utilized to separate particles of three dissimilar sizes simultaneously in a microfluidic chip. This continuous-flow separation is attributed to the particle size dependent dielectrophoretic force that is generated by the non-uniform electric field around a single insulating hurdle on the channel sidewall.
