Abstract

A microflap system to incline adherent cells in the desired orientation is described. Inclination angles of cell-laden microflaps are precisely controlled by the applied magnetic field, enabling us to observe cell-membrane boundaries from multiple angles. This system is equipped with conventional microscopes, allowing clear focused images of cell-membrane boundaries to be obtained with high magnification.
