Microfluidics Cell Device May Speed Drug Discovery Efforts

Abstract:
Robert Langer, Ph.D. and his colleagues at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harvard Medical School have successfully designed one such device and demonstrated how this microfluidics chip can capture a wide range of cells within tiny reservoirs that can be flooded with various drug-containing solutions. The investigators believe that their ability to position specific cell types within defined reservoirs should improve drug screening efforts.
