Transparent soft PDMS eggshell created as step towards embryo lab on a chip

Lab-on-a-chip (LOC) systems have registered tremendous progress over the past 20 years. Myriad 'chip' schemes have already emerged, ranging from the lung-on-a-chip and heart-on-a-chip to the liver-on-a-chip and kidney-on-a-chip. However, until now, an ideal embryo-on-a-chip has not yet been developed due to challenges in condensing so many life factors inside a conventional LOC.
