Microscale technologies have been emerged as powerful tools for tissue engineering. Such technologies render precise positioning for the cells in order to define the cell-cell and cell-extracellular matrix (ECM) interactions mimicking the structure of native tissue constructs. Dielectrophoresis (DEP) method is a suitable microscale technology to do that having notable characteristics in cell manipulation such as being high accurate, rapid, scalable, and capable of handling both adherent and non-adherent cells. DEP could be used in...
