Abstract: Cell-cell communication plays a pivotal role in coordination and function of biological systems. Three-dimensional (3D) spheroids provide venues to explore cellular communication for tissue development and drug discovery, as their 3D architecture mimics native in vivo microenvironments. Cellular electrophysiology is a prevalent signaling paradigm for studying electroactive cells. Currently, electrophysiological studies do not provide direct, multisite, simultaneous investigation of tissues in 3D. In this study, 3D self-rolled biosensor arrays (3D-SR-BAs) of either active field-effect transistors or passive microelectrodes were implemented to interface human cardiac spheroids in 3D. The arrays provided continuous and stable multiplexed recordings of field potentials with high sensitivity and spatiotemporal resolution, supported with simultaneous calcium imaging. Our approach enables electrophysiological investigation and monitoring of the complex signal transduction in 3D cellular assemblies toward an organ-on-an-electronic-chip (organ-on-e-chip) platform for tissue maturation investigations and development of drugs for disease treatment, such as arrhythmias.
