Abstract

This study has developed a new method to co-culture the two different cells in the specific gap and the cells migration is observed in the fluid shear stress device. Our strategy is using the capillary principle to seed two different cells separately in the co-culture microchip. Smaller gap sizes (100 μm and 50 μm) would cause the migration phenomenon due to the mutual induction between ECs and SMCs. When the fluid shear stress is raised up to 12 dyne/cm, it restrains both the velocities of the SMCs and ECs migration.
