Cell lysis is an essential step in whole blood sample preparation, which can pave road for intracellular proteomic analysis or genomic analysis and therefore cell membrane rupture is requested for protein and gene release. In this chapter, we firstly introduce reported microfluidic devices for cell lysis. And then an example using the chemical cell lysis method in microfluidic chip is put forward in which a sandwich microfluidic chip was designed, fabricated and tested to disrupt blood cell membranes.

Keywords: Cell lysis, MEMS, microfluidics.
