Many of the vascular functions, hemodynamic forces, cellular interactions and related diseases are strictly related to of physical geometry of vasculature. Combination of microfluidics and cell biology offers a physiologically realistic platform to reproduce various vascular models in laboratory leading to better understandings about cell and tissue physiology in 3D environment. Under a shear flow, however, the stability of cells that were grown on physically adsorbed proteins is short lived, which limits long-term cell studies. Focusing on this issue various protein-substrate linkages were developed for stable cell growth under high flow conditions (at physiological shear stress in human vasculature). APTES (3-Aminopropyl)triethoxysilane is primarily used to immobilized collagen on PDMS surface for stable endothelial cells growth at long term, high shear stress.
