Microfluidic Chamber to Mimic Inner Ear Endolymph and Perilymph Dynamics

Semester: Fall 2023

Presentation description

The goal of this study is to build a device to test pH and ionic changes to the glial like supporting cells and hair cells of the inner ear. The inner ear anatomy is inaccessible which makes it difficult to do in vivo studies. There are six inner ear organs; five vestibular organs that are surrounded by the Endolymph and Perilymph fluids. To determine the effects of the fluids on these organs, an in vitro microfluidic chamber was designed.
