Abstract

We present a novel non-adhesive cell culture microdevice that has a loop channel with a micropost array for cell handling. Non-adhesive cells are focused on the upper side in the channel by the tilted micropost array, and they circulate around the same channel while medium was exchange. Our device enables us to culture non-adhesive cells for longer-term without stressful cell trapping.
