Microfluidic systems in combination with microscopy (e.g., fluorescence) can be a powerful tool to study, at single-cell level, the behavior and morphology of biological cells after uptake of glucose. Here, we briefly discuss the advantages of using microfluidic systems. We further describe how microfluidic systems are fabricated and how they are utilized. Finally, we discuss how the large amount of data can be analyzed in a “semi-automatic” manner using custom-made software. In summary, we provide a guide to how to use microfluidic systems in single-cell studies. © Springer Science+Business Media LLC 2018.
