An anisotropic hydrogel for visual heart-on-a-chip construction

Abstract "Heart-on-a-chip plays an important role in revealing the biological mechanism and developing new drugs for cardiomyopathy. Tremendous efforts have been devoted to developing heart-on-a-chip systems featuring simplified fabrication, accurate imitation and microphysiological visuality. In this paper, the authors present a novel electroconductive and anisotropic structural...

Portable microfluidic platform for biomarker sensing

Abstract "Biomarker detection and bulk refractive index sensing are important across multiple industries ranging from early medical diagnosis to chemical process quality control. The bulky size, high cost, and complex architecture of existing refractive index and biomarker sensing technologies limit their use to highly skilled environments...

microfluidic chip to study human trophoblast invasion during implantation

A microenigneered system models multicellular events in early pregnancy

The complex process of human pregnancy begins with the crucial step of embryo implantation. This involves the intricate interaction between the embryo's trophoblast cells and the maternal endometrium. A groundbreaking study published in Nature Communications has developed an advanced microfluidic chip, termed "implantation-on-a-chip", to simulate...
