A tubing-free microfluidic wound-healing assay quantifying vascular smooth muscle cell migration

This paper presents a tubing-free microfluidic wound healing assay to quantify the migration of vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs). In this study, gravity was used to generate a laminar flow within microfluidic channels, enabling wound formation of VSMCs in a tubing-free manner. The effects of channel geometries (i.e., variations in channel height and… CONTINUE READING
