Abstract

We have succeeded in maintaining self-organized microvascular networks on-chip for over a month in a portable (71×26×28 mm) microfluidic co-culture system of endothelial cells and fibroblasts. We observed the long-term changes of microvascular networks in a microchannel. Perfusion through lumens may accelerate the remodeling processes. HUVECs formed stable lumens by around 100th day of cultivation, and the lumens could be maintained for at least 132 days.
