Identification of leukemia and cancerous leukocytes based on biophysical properties
MetadataShow full item record
The goal of the research described in this thesis is to determine size, elasticity, and viscoelasticity of 4 leukocyte cell types, neutrophils, lymphocytes, HL60, and Jurkat. HL60 is a representative of Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML), and Jurkat is representative of Acute T cell leukemia (ALL). Neutrophils and Lymphocytes are two different types of healthy white blood cells. We believe it is possible to differentiate cells only using mechanical characteristics.
