A major challenge in cell biology is the development of technologies that allow the quantitative monitoring of cellular responses with a high resolution over a wide range of time scales. To dynamically image cellular events in vivo, it is essential to maintain the sample alive in non-stressful conditions under the microscope. Microfluidic chips allow living organisms or cells to be grown in micro-chambers on a microscope stage, under perfusion with a desired medium.
