Introduction: themed issue dedicated to Professor Kahp-Yang Suh
Pilnam Kim, Noo Li Jeon and Ali Khademhosseini introduce the Lab on a Chip themed issue dedicated to Professor Kahp-Yang Suh.
Frontier microfluidic techniques for short and long-term single cell analysis
This review details the frontier microfluidic platforms for single cell analysis, highlighting technological improvements and cell analysis capabilities.
Microfluidic spinning of micro- and nano-scale fibers for tissue engineering
Microfluidic-based spinning techniques for producing micro- and nano-scale fibers, and their potential applications to tissue engineering are reviewed.
Hydrogel bioprinted microchannel networks for vascularization of tissue engineering constructs
A bioprinting strategy for vascularization of tissue engineering constructs and fabrication of 3d microchannel networks for hydrogel based microfluidics and organs-on-a-chip applications.
From chip-in-a-lab to lab-on-a-chip: towards a single handheld electronic system for multiple application-specific lab-on-a-chip (ASLOC)
We present a portable, battery-operated and application-specific lab-on-a-chip (ASLOC) system that can be easily configured for a wide range of lab-on-a-chip applications.
Defined topologically-complex protein matrices to manipulate cell shape via three-dimensional fiber-like patterns
We develop a technique to generate well-defined adhesive micropatterns on topologically complex substrates, enabling the culture of individual cells in precisely-controlled, three-dimensional adhesive microstructures.
Dynamic trapping and two-dimensional transport of swimming microorganisms using a rotating magnetic microrobot
Non-contact, selective and dynamic trapping and transportation of motile microorganisms using locally induced flows with minimal damage.
Geometric effect of the hydrogel grid structure on in vitro formation of homogeneous MIN6 cell clusters
Floating hydrogel–cell membrane constructs with a hexagonal grid structure were exploited for spontaneous formation of homogeneous MIN6 cell clustering, which can be used as pancreatic pseudo-islets enhancing insulin secretion.
About this collection
Kahp-Yang Suh was an extraordinarily insightful and productive scientist in the field of nanotechnology, materials science and bio-inspired systems. He published over 200 journal articles over his short academic life. We were all shocked by his untimely passing and in this issue we celebrate his contribution to microfluidics research.
