22_28b/2010Cell-Compatible Hydrogels: A Microfluidic Hydrogel Capable of Cell Preservation without Perfusion Culture under Cell-Based Assay Conditions (Adv. Mater. 28/2010)

Yan Xu and co-workers report on p. 3017 on a phospholipid polymer hydrogel that exhibits a remarkable ability to preserve cells on microfluidic chips without perfusion culture under cell-based assay conditions, with characteristics including maintenance of high cell viability, restraint of cell proliferation, and minimization of cellular function loss over a period of days and weeks. This material could establish a revolutionary flexibility for cellbased applications.
