Scientist develop microfluidic device for testing electric field on cancer cells


MIT Alliance for Research and Technology  have developed a new microfluidic gadget that tests the effects of electric fields on cancer cells. They watched that a range of low-intensity, middle-frequency electric fields adequately paused breast and lung tumor cells from developing and spreading, while having no unfavorable impact on neighboring healthy cells.

The device, about the measure of a U.S. dollar coin, is intended to help researchers tight in on safe range of electric fields to noninvasively treat breast, lung, and different types of cancer. The outcomes are published online in Scientific Reports.
