Abstract

Microfluidic systems are increasingly being used for the culture and study of dissociated cells because they facilitate drug screening and chemotaxis studies using minute amounts of chemicals. However, microfluidics have not been adopted for brain slices because of the challenges associated with the culture conditions necessary for maintaining the integrity of the slices. Here, we present a microfluidic system comprising a perfusion chamber compatible with confocal microscopy and a transparent microfluidic probe (MFP) for local microperfusion of organotypic brain slices for epilepsy studies.
