On-chip clearing of arrays of 3-D cell cultures and micro-tissues

On-chip clearing of arrays of 3-D cell cultures and micro-tissues

Grist, Samantha, S. Soroush Nasseri, Tak Poon, Calvin Roskelley, and Karen C. Cheung. “On‐chip clearing of arrays of 3-D cell cultures and micro‐tissues”. Biomicrofluidics (American Institute of Physics), 2016. 10:044107. doi:10.1063/1.4959031 Three-dimensional (3-D) cell cultures are beneficial models for mimicking the complexities of in vivo tissues, especially in tumour studies where transport limitations can complicate […]

Modeling and Simulation of Molecular Communication Systems with a Reversible Adsorption Receiver

Yansha Deng, Adam Noel, Maged Elkashlan, Arumugam Nallanathan, Karen C Cheung arXiv preprint arXiv:1601.00681 In this paper, we present an analytical model for the diffusive molecular communication (MC) system with a reversible adsorption receiver in a fluid environment. The widely used concentration shift keying (CSK) is considered for modulation. The time- varying spatial distribution of […]

Rheological manipulation for improved reliability in inkjet printing of living cells

Eric Cheng, Haoran Yu, Ali Ahmadi, Karen C Cheung 2016 IEEE 29th International Conference on Micro Electro Mechanical Systems (MEMS), 784-787. In this paper, we investigated the effects of the rheological manipulation on the trajectory of suspended cells during inNjet printing using piezoelectrically actuated nozzles. Suspensions of MCF-7 cells in phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) and 10% w/v […]
