This work proposes a miniaturized system able to perform multiple cell capture followed by cell-type selective release from a gold-coated biochip surface. Unlabeled lymphocytes are first specifically captured onto a DNA array by antibody-DNA conjugates. Then a laser illuminates, from below the sample under total reflection conditions, the cells spots to be released. In well-defined conditions, the energy of incoming photons is absorbed by surface electron oscillations, and then heat converted and dissipated into the neighboring medium. Because of the temperature rising, the double-stranded DNA dehybridate which enables a spatially and temporaly controlled liberation of corresponding biological objects (i.e. lymphocytes) upon laser-induced local heating.
