Abstract

Cells not only sense their biochemical and biological environment, they also respond to physical cues. To study the effect of mechanical inputs on cells, techniques commonly rely on growing cells on stretchable substrates or exerting force via directly contacting cells. Our work suggests that acoustic radiation pressure applied with ultrasonic devices can be used to compress cells without requiring direct contact.
