Title: (EN) Microfluidic system and methods of use
Abstract: front page image
(EN) This invention relates to a novel microfluidic device and methods of using this device to conduct $i(in vitro) studies on the reaction and effects of various compounds on cells. More particularly, it relates to a method for using stop flow in a microfluidic system to study the effect of compounds on individual cells. It also provides a method for observing the effects of candidate compounds on leukocyte rolling.
