Abstract

This study presents a novel microfluidic approach for developing large scale screening assays of anticancer compounds on 3D multicellular spheroids. We have developed a microfluidic device with associated protocols that combine the high-throughput characteristics of droplet microfluidics for spheroid formation and aggregation with those of single-phase microfluidics for substance exchange, long term culture and drug perfusion.
