The separation of red blood cells from plasma flowing in microchannels is possible by bio-physical effects such as an axial migration effect and Zweifach-Fung bifurcation law. In the present study, subchannels are placed alongside a main channel to collect cells and plasma separately. The addition of a constriction in the main microchannel creates a local high shear force region, forcing the cells to migrate and concentrate towards the centre of the channel. The resulting lab-on-a-chip was manufactured using biocompatible materials. Purity efficiency was measured for mussel and human blood suspensions as different parameters including flow rate and geometries of parent and daughter channels were varied.
