      Abstract: Separation and subsequent culturing of   MCF-7 breast cancer cells on self-assembled protein-coated   magnetic beads in a microfluidic chip is demonstrated. The beads   were patterned in situ inside a sealed microfluidic channel using   magnetic-field-assisted electrostatic self-assembly. Hereafter,   they were grafted by exposure to a solution of 5D10 monoclonal   antibodies (mAb) and fibronectin (EN), with the first being used   for immunospecific cell capture and the latter being used for   cell adhesion and growth. A solution of target MCF-7 cells mixed   with Jurkat cells was brought inside the microchannel, leading,   to specific MCF-7 cell capture; the latter were then cultured and   evidenced by cell immuno-luminescence
