Microfluidic Device Suspends Live Cancer Tissue for Weeks to Study How it Spreads Through Body

At the University of Michigan researchers have developed a special microfluidic device that can help to study how cancer spreads to different parts of the body. While microfluidic systems have been in existence for years now, they typically don’t allow cells to live inside them and be monitored for longer than a few days. The […]
