We report a new approach for micro Coulter counter with thin film electrodes. Traditional Coulter counter measures DC resistance change to sense particles passing through an aperture between two flow chambers. One of the biggest challenges to miniaturize the device is to overcome the large resistance encountered. We propose a new approach to use thin film metal electrodes in micron size range for sensing. Resolution can be improved and it's easy for system integration. A device based on this approach was built and tested
