Microfluidic lipid membrane formation on microchamber arrays

Author affiliations

Abstract

We present a simple method to form free-standing lipid membranes on arrayed microchambers (>100). The formed membranes are perpendicular to an imaging plane with control of solute concentration on each side of the membranes. This platform let us quantitatively detect membrane transport of non-charged fluorescent molecules, induced by membrane proteins.
