Root-chip microfluidic channel for packaging, storing, culturing, and imaging Arabidopsis roots. a The chip design contains a single root culture channel and accessory ports for sampling and delivery of media and microbes. b A vacuum-packaged microfluidic root-chip shown with the same orientation. c Arabidopsis root growing in the central microfluidic channel with marks for measuring growth. d Growth data for vacuum-packed and control seeds. The packaging process does not attenuate growth conditions of stored roots (< 14 days at room temperature)
