Description

Electric fields have been shown to induce changes within chondrocytes. The migration of chondrocytes in an electric field is monitored via electrotaxis assays. We have developed a 3D printed portable assay that allows us to apply an electric field to chondrocytes in a 3-Dimensional collagen matrix. This will allow for further investigation into the potential benefits of electric fields for enhancing cartilage production and quality.
