Morphological transition of microglia in microfluidic devices. Primary rat microglia (left panel) and N9 microglia cell line (right panel) are maintained in culture on microfluidic devices for 24 hours and subjected to immunofluorescence and confocal analysis with phalloidin (green) plus P2Y12 receptors antiserum (red) (left panel, scale bar = 50 μm) or fluorescence with phalloidin (right panel, scale bar = 20 μm). mc indicates the microchannels areas and cc shows the culturing chambers, as schematically depicted in Figure 4.
