Use and fabrication of microfluidic circuits formed with submerged microjets

Abstract:

We have developed a method to fabricate microfluidic circuits that facilitate static and dynamic assays in cell biology. These microfluidic arrangements are made on standard tissue-culture Petri dishes in a manner analogous to pressure washing a patio: a submerged impinging microjet (SIM) of bioinert, transparent, and gas-permeable fluorocarbon (FC-40) displaces a dish-wetting aqueous solution (typically cell media) in any predetermined 2D pattern. The media left wetting the substrate is n...
