Many microfluidic systems need a self-contained active pump of a size comparable with the volume of fluid to be pumped. Key considerations are its reliability, power consumption, actuation voltage, ease and cost of fabrication and accuracy.
The immune system is a striking example of an integrated information system, engaged in coordinated host-protective activities. Organs-on-chip approach (OOC) models allow the direct simultaneous observation of hundreds of different cells, moving, interacting and responding to signals coming from the microenvironment nearby, that give access to a number of parameters describing the system that must be properly measured and elaborated.READ MORE
