    Abstract

    We report here an experimentation platform directly made in a commercially available Petri dish for large-scale production of uniformly sized microtissues and their in situ characterization using both conventional microscopy and a scanning probe technique. The platform is realized by hot embossing microwell arrays in Petri dishes. Following suitable surface coating, microtissues spontaneously form in the microwells upon cell seeding, as shown for various cell lines (C2C12, MCF-7, HepG2 and HeLa). Finally, the microtissues are exposed to a model drug (ethanol), and they are imaged using fluorescence techniques and non-invasive scanning electrochemical microscopy (SECM).
