Recently, our laboratory, Companion Animal Cancer Research Unit, CAC-RU is interested in cancer stem cell (CSC) analysis both at the single cell and the tissue-based levels. However, cellular heterogeneity is still the major hassle for our comprehension in CSC biology. Therefore, to overcome and eradicate this big obstacles, a single cell analysis method must be established. Our laboratory has finally setup and integrated the microfluidics-based single cell analysis into our CSC researches under the association with Department of Mechanical Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, Chulalongkorn University and Thai Micro-electronic Centre, NECTEC, Ministry of Science and Technology, Thailand and Faculty of Medical Technic, Mahidol University since 2013 till present.
