Lasers Carve Bio-Friendly Microfluidic Systems

A team of researchers from Switzerland’s Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) has developed a short-pulse laser-based technique for carving 3-D tunnel-like microfluidic structures in cell-culture hydrogels. They say that that their technique has the potential to advance tissue engineering by creating biocompatible structures that can influence cell function and promote tissue formation.
