A toolkit of thread-based microfluidics, sensors, and electronics for 3D tissue embedding for medical diagnostics.Sonkusale, Sameer.
Alberti, Kyle A.
Threads, traditionally used in the apparel industry, have recently emerged as a promising material for the creation of tissue constructs and biomedical implants for organ replacement and repair. The wicking property and flexibility of threads also make them promising candidates for the creation of three-dimensional (3D) microfluidic circuits. In this paper, we report on thread-based microfluidic n... read more
