A novel approach to quantifying ciliary physiology: microfluidic mixing driven by a ciliated biological surface

Author affiliations

Abstract

From the lungs to the central nervous system, cilia-driven fluid flow plays a fundamental role in many facets of life. Yet, there are few quantitative methods for analysing the function of ciliated surfaces. Here, we report a novel microfluidic approach for quantifying the performance of a ciliated surface using mixing performance as an integrated readout.
