In vitro scratch wound assays are commonly used strategies to measure cell repair rate, facilitating the study of cell migration, tissue reorganization, and cell division. This work presented a simple and novel microfluidic device that allowed a quantitative investigation of the cell migration and cell proliferation behaviors in an in vitro wound-healing model, especially focused on the scratch assay. The microfluidic device is composed of four units, which include cell growth regions and cell… CONTINUE READING
