In this study the design and the realization of low-cost valves suitable for the integration into disposable polymer chips is presented. In contrast to commonly used sandwich-setups a plain design consisting of a simply structured polymer chip and a cover membrane is used.
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
