Floating Sensor Speeds Tissue Engineering

Floating Sensor Speeds Tissue Engineering
A waterproof monitoring sensor that floats on top of cell cultures will aid research in engineered tissue and drug development.

The device is made up of an ultra-buoyant scaffold that can float on top of the culture medium and monitor the electrophysiological activities of cells via its stacked sensor array. The scaffold can flex to conform to the surface of the culture, gathering as much information as possible, while the electronics remain safely dry on the other side.

According to assistant professor Chi Hwan Lee, “This device offers an expanded set of potential options to monitor cell and tissue function after surgical transplants in diseased or damaged bodies.”
