3D silicon microstructures: a new tool for evaluating biological aggressiveness of tumour cells 556 235 Transactions on NanoBioscience (TNB)

In this work, silicon micromachined structures (SMS), consisting of arrays of 3-µm-thick silicon walls separated by 50-µm-deep, 5-µm-wide gaps, were applied to investigate the behaviour of eight tumour cell lines,…
