We describe here a simple device for dielectrophoretic concentration of marine microalga Karenia brevis non-motile cells, followed by electric field-mediated lysis for RNA extraction. The lysate was purified using magnetic beads and pure RNA extracted. RNA quality was assessed off-chip by nucleic acid sequence-based amplification and the optimum conditions for lysis were determined. This procedure will form part of an integrated microfluidic system that is being developed with sub-systems for performing cell concentration and lysis, RNA extraction/purification and real-time quantitative RNA detection. The integrated system and its components could be used for a large range of applications including in situ harmful algal bloom detection, transcriptomics and point-of-care diagnostics.
