What are Microchannels?
Microchannels allow the connection between compartments. Due to their micrometric measurements (typically 3µm height and 5µm width), only neurites can grow within the microchannels, leaving the cell bodies within the compartments themselves. Depending on the desired results, the microchannels are available in 2 formats: tunnels and grooves. The tunnels allow a discontinuous connection and the grooves a continuous connection.
