Title
(EN) MICROFLUIDIC CELL CULTURE PLATE FOR AIR-LIQUID INTERFACE AND 3D CULTURED TISSUE APPLICATIONS
Abstract
(EN)

The present disclosure describes systems and methods for providing culturing of a number of various tissue types in an air-liquid configuration in a high-throughput format and allowing co-culture of cells as well as application of physiologically relevant flow. A microfluidic cell culturing device is provided that includes a first channel having a first inlet port and a second inlet port, the first channel defined in a first layer. The microfluidic cell culturing device includes a membrane layer having a first surface coupled to the first layer defining the first channel, the membrane layer comprising semipermeable membrane that forms at least a portion of a surface of the first channel. The microfluidic cell culturing device includes a chamber defined in a second layer that exposes a portion the membrane layer to an external environment, wherein the chamber overlaps a portion of the first channel across the membrane layer.
