Title: (EN) MICROFLUIDIC SYSTEM AND METHODS OF USE
(FR) SYSTEME MICROFLUIDIQUE ET SES UTILISATIONS
Abstract:
(EN) This invention relates to a novel microfluidic device and methods of using this device to conduct 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.
