Multiple depths in a deterministic lateral displacement device for field-diagnosis of sleeping-sickness

Holm, Stefan H. LU ; Beech, Jason P. LU ; Barrett, Michael P. and Tegenfeldt, Jonas O. LU orcid (2011) 15th International Conference on Miniaturized Systems for Chemistry and Life Sciences 2011, MicroTAS 2011 1. p.527-529
Abstract

We present a simple and inexpensive device capable of extracting and concentrating the parasite causing sleeping sickness from blood. The device is aimed at being used in rural resource depraved areas where the disease is endemic; therefore simplicity is of paramount importance. The device is based on deterministic lateral displacement with a single inlet and flow induced by a syringe. Through an intricate design with multiple depths, a cell free stream is created from the blood plasma into which the parasites are guided and subsequently collected in a dedicated reservoir for observation.
