Figure Legend Snippet: Microdevice operation and modelling of the tumour microenvironment. ( A ) Appearance of the microdevice. Microdevices are fabricated by injection moulding and can be attached to the bottom of a Petri dish using biocompatible adhesive; three identical devices are shown. ( B ) Magnified image of a microdevice with collagen hydrogel confined to the central microchamber and blue-coloured water perfused through the two lateral microchannels to ease visualization. Droplets are located on top of the inlets to prevent evaporation. Scale bar is 1 cm. ( C ) The principle of the live ‘tumour slice’: Culture medium perfused through the lateral microchannels provides nutrients and oxygen creating physiological gradients across the device. Cells near the ‘surrogate’ blood vessels are viable, whereas oxygen-poor cells in the centre of device start to die creating a ‘necrotic core’ similar to the necrotic regions of tumours. ( D ) Cellular visualization in the microdevice. 20 million U-251 MG cells/ml were embedded in collagen and pipetted into the central chamber of the microdevice. Image shows appearance by confocal microscopy 24 h later. Cells were labelled before injection with the green-fluorescent lipid dye Dio Vybrant® which stains cell membranes enabling all cells to be visualized. Scale bar is 400 μm. ( E ) Incomplete cell visualization within a multicellular spheroid due to its thickness. 10000 U-251 MG cells were labelled with green-fluorescent Dio Vybrant® dye, in suspension to ensure all cells were equally labelled and these were used to form the spheroid. Scale bar is 400 μm. ( F ) Quantification of cellular fluorescence across the yellow bordered regions in the microdevice and the spheroid as indicated in ( D,E ).
