Isolation and capture of rare cells continues to be a daunting task that is still looking for an innovative and efficient method. While a variety of approaches have been suggested over the past several years, immunocapturing in a microfluidic platform carries a substantial promise as shown by recent published works. In this paper, we introduced a combination of inertial focusing and passive micro-mixing through 3D chevron-type features in a microchannel to induce chaotic mixing within antibody-coated microchannels and, ultimately, promote rare cell capture. The device introduced in this work contains curved microchannels that consist of a series of staggered chevron grooves. The curved channels enable inertial focusing while the chevron grooves allow for chaotic mixing. The microfluidics platform microfabricated through soft lithography has a polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) foundation and was thinly coated with an alginate hydrogel derivatized with streptavidin. We submitted that our qualitative and quantitative results demonstrated the potentials in advancements in rare cell isolation through this integration of two techniques.
