Abstract

In this paper, we report a cost-effective, disposable microfluidic microfiltration device for the fast separation of capillary volumes of undiluted whole blood. The proposed device is operated without power or specialist equipment, requiring only a commercial metered device (Minivette®, Sarstedt) used for the collection of blood from a finger prick to actuate the blood flow in a dead-end filtration setup. The device can extract 27.7 ± 6 μL of 100% pure plasma from 100 μL of undiluted whole blood in three minutes.
