Images of Cell Compression by a New Cell Compresion Microdevice (image) Kumamoto University Share Print E-Mail Caption The cell compression microdevice developed by Associate Professor Nakashima from Kumamoto University, Japan is cheaper, easier to use, and less invasive than current methods of measuring the mechanical properties of a cell. This image is a time-lapse of a cell under compression in the microdevice. Image reprinted from Tairo Yokokura, Yuta Nakashima, Yukihiro Yonemoto, Yuki Hikichi, and Yoshitaka Nakanishi.
