Abstract

This paper reports a droplet-based microfluidic approach to fabricate a large number of monodisperse, portable microtissues, each in an individual drop. We use water-water-oil double emulsions as templates and spatially assemble hepatocytes in the core and fibroblasts in the shell, forming a 3D liver model in a drop.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 6. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 25 March 2016.
All research outputs
#4,595,543
of 17,839,572 outputs
Outputs from Lab on a Chip - Miniaturisation for Chemistry & Biology
#1,625
of 4,808 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#73,080
of 272,366 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Lab on a Chip - Miniaturisation for Chemistry & Biology
#20
of 59 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 17,839,572 research outputs across all sources so far. This one has received more attention than most of these and is in the 74th percentile.
So far Altmetric has tracked 4,808 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 6.8. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 66% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 272,366 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 73% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 59 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 67% of its contemporaries.
