In this review we present data supporting the feasibility to perform experiments based on dielectrophoresis (DEP) and on molecular interactions between monoclonal antibodies and membrane proteins. This allows propose DEP-based Lab-on-a-chip platforms for several biotechnological applications depending on the interactions between monoclonal antibodies and target cells, including immunophenotype characterization, isolation of rare cells, drug targeting.
