Cells being compressed in microfluidic device

Cells being compressed in microfluidic device

Image taken from a video shows cells moving across “speed bump” barriers in a microfluidic device. The resulting collisions compress fluid from the cells, reducing their volume. When the cells refill themselves, they can suck up therapeutic macromolecules and genes from their surroundings.
