Sonoporation of suspension cells in a microfluidic format by use of a single cavitation bubble.

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

We report here on both viable and permanent poration of (suspension) cells by combining microfluidics and cavitation bubbles. Cells are placed in a PDMS microchamber and exposed to a single 100-μm sized cavitation bubble. The expansion and collapse of the bubble results in shear on cells, and eventually thereby in cellular poration. We demonstrate that cell poration depends on the initial cell-bubble distance and we determine a critical distance below which > 50 % cells are affected by the bubble.
