Use of 3DCellMaker in Microfluidic Device

Below are a series of microscope photos displaying MCF-7 cells being cultured on a TMOC (Tumor Microenvironment on Chip) microfluidic platform developed by Bumsoo Han Ph.D and his team at Purdue University. We used this device to culture MCF-7 cells in 3DCellMaker. In this experiment we used A3DH for its ability to thermogel quickly once the microfluidic device was filled. We do not recommend the use of A3DH in cold seeding applications but it was a viable option in this instance.
