Abstract

We present a single cell assay microfluidic chip that can 1) load cells into a microwell array at single cell resolution with a high capturing efficiency, 2) grow them into homogeneous clonal colonies without cell migration between neighbouring microwells, and 3) supply cell culture media or reagents to each microwell from a perfusion gravity flow induced by pressure difference between inlet and outlet reservoirs. Using the fabricated chip, we successfully identified three clonal phenotypes in prostate cancer cells and observed the drug responsiveness varies in different subtypes.
