How it works
The cells are stretched by pulling the silicone membrane with the embedded microelectrodes over the indenter. The electrodes stretch with the tissue, thus being able to record neural activity before and after stretching from the same location.
Assess Cell Health and Maturity with Electrophyiological Measurements
Before Stretching: The electrodes record neural activity prior to cell stretching.
During Stretching: The stretchable electrodes move with the tissue during the stretching motion.
After Stretching:The stretchable electrodes record neural activity after the cells were stretched from the same location as before the stretching motion.
