3D biochips make cells at home

  July 21/28, 2008
A biochip harboring hydrogels makes it possible to study cells in a more lifelike three-dimensional environment. The biochip reproduces cells' physical environments, including the effects of fluid flows, better than two-dimensional cell cultures.

The biochip was used to study capillary formation.
