|Abstract:||Sepsis is an adverse systemic inflammatory response caused by microbial infection in blood. This paper reports a novel microfluidic approach for non-specific removal of both pathogen and inflammatory cellular components from whole blood directly using cell margination. A high microbial removal efficiency of > 80% was achieved in our device consisting of 2 cascaded microchannels in series, thus allowing a 2-stage removal of microbes in a single step. ∼90% of platelets and leukocytes were also successfully removed from the blood which can be used to modulate the host inflammatory responses and potentially as a blood cleansing method for sepsis treatment.|
