Sorting target bio-cells like RBC, WBC, and CTCs from complex samples into a high-purity product is

challenging yet essential for downstream cell biology research and clinical diagnostics. Conventional active

particle sorting approaches include centrifugation and fluorescent activated cell sorting (FACS), both of which

may cause contamination and loss of target cells. On the contrary, the rising field of inertial microfluidics

brought light to label-free passive particle sorting, which also eliminates potential cell-damaging procedures.
