LPL35: Microfluidic Cell Culture Array


The investigation of biological processes on the cellular level is becoming increasingly important for medical and bioengineering purposes. We have learned from genomics and proteomics that a vast amount of molecular information is integrated on the cell level. However, current technology is limited in the ability to assay cellular responses to stimuli in high throughput format. Specifically, a standardized platform to perform array experiments on the laboratory scale is needed to help scientists unravel the complexities of eukaryotic cellular behavior. To this end, we are developing a microfluidic cell culture array as an inexpensive, flexible system for providing a controlled cell growth and analysis microenvironment.
