This technique allows for the production of functional CMTs from readily available cells, with monitoring of the contraction frequency, duration, and forces. Monitoring of the impact of physical (i.e. matrix and boundary mechanics, electrical stimulation) and chemical changes on the maturation, structure, and function of cardiac tissue can be conducted. This model provides reproducible morphogenetic phenotyping that is absent in current two-dimensional culture models.
