Micro fingers for arranging single cells

Development of hollow microprobe array for handling single cells in a parallel layout
Toyohashi Tech researchers have developed a cell manipulation tool to trap and release single cells in a parallel arrangement in open-top microwells. Using microfabrication techniques, the researchers developed a hollow microprobe array with designed parameters. Single cells were trapped by suction and released by a flow generated through the probes. In the future, this tool will enable the reconstruction of microenvironments of stem cells, which can be employed to investigate stem cells for regenerative medicine.
