Abstract

Lack of in vitro co-culture devices hinder investigations aiming to uncover the role of human-associated microbial community imbalances in causation of numerous medical conditions. We describe the development and validation of a microfluidics-based co-culture device (HuMiX) allowing co-cultivation of human and microbial cells. The modular device architecture provides access to individual co-cultured contingents following targeted perturbations which facilitate high resolution systemic investigations into the hypothesized role of the complex host-microbial molecular interactions in the pathogenesis of idiopathic medical conditions.
