Abstract

This paper addresses and demonstrates the feasibility for microwave dielectric spectroscopy to detect small volume fractions of SK-MES lung cancer cells embedded in collagen gels with an open-ended coaxial probe. Measurements were performed on the frequency range 200 MHz – 2 GHz. For all the cell volume fractions tested (1.4%-4.4%), a significant difference in complex permittivity was observed between composite gels (containing cells) compared to gels alone. Statistically significant changes were especially found in the real part of the permittivity, which decreased consistently when the volume fraction increased.
