Design of an innovative microfluidic system to study chemotactic transmembranal migration of leukocytes
Poster Aug 07, 2009
Aim of this project is to develop a versatile and highthroughput microdevice, to be employed in studies of leukocytic chemotaxis, shear stress dependent.
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
