Microfluidic-based strip assay for testing the effects of various surface-bound inhibitors in spinal cord injury.
Vahidi B, Park JW, Kim HJ, Jeon NL.
Cover (left) Description: Microfluidics and surface micropatterning methods are combined to
develop a drug screening platform for spinal cord injury and for axonal regeneration research. Cells (stained green) are selectively placed on a band coated with Polylysine.
The immediate areas to the left and right are patterned with alternating strips of polylysine and Chondroitin Sulfate Proteoglycan. The axons (stained green) grow only on
the strips coated with polylysine.
