Cell spheroids and microfluidics

Putting cells together in a ball (cell spheroids) allows us to mimic the environment of biological tissues. At the department of Chemical Engineering, Delft University of Technology, a group of researchers have developed a strategy to study this spheroids mechanical properties using a glass capillary micropipette aspiration based technique.

This research, lead by Pouyan Boukany and Ruben Boot has been featured in the cover of Lab on a Chip.
