About this book


This volume provides a comprehensive look at the current fabrication methods, materials, cell patterning techniques, and practical application of live-cell microarrays. The chapters in this book are categorized into six parts: introduction, biointerface engineering and live-cell microarrays, printing techniques for live-cell microarrays, live-cell microarray application, microfluidic live-cell arrays, and advanced materials suitable for live-cell microarrays. Some of the topics covered are artificial micro-niche array with spatially structured biochemical cues; inkjet printing for biomedical application; fabrication of multi-electrode arrays for neurobiology applications; rapid prototyping of thermoplastic microfluidic devices; and oxygen-generating photocrosslinkable hydrogel. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.

Cutting-edge and thorough, Cell-Based Microarrays: Methods and Protocols is a valuable resource for anyone interested in expanding their knowledge and research of cell-based microarrays.
