    Abstract

    We present a label-free, impedance based cell in droplet detection system. Unlike other work [1,2], this system does not involve the use of valves or expensive labor-intensive cell labeling. The presented platform shows for the first time simple, fast and all electrical discrimination between empty and cell containing droplets. This enables the downstream selection of single-cell containing droplets, while the electrical measurement technique allows for easy integration.
