A stripe‐patterned thermo‐responsive surface is prepared to enable cell separation without labeling. The thermo‐responsive surface containing a 3 μm striped pattern exhibits various cell adhesion and detachment properties. A mixture of three cell types is separated on the patterned surface based on their distinct cell‐adhesion properties, and the composition of the cells is analyzed by flow cytometry.
