In this chapter various microsystems (called Lab-on-a-Chip) dedicated to cell engineering are described. We present methods for microsystems fabrication and also essential parameters, which have influence on cell culture in microscale. This area of research is significant, because microsystems nowadays play an important role in cell studies and drug development. It can be caused by possibility to perform high-throughput screening in microscale. In addition, the size scale of microfluidic devices is especially suitable for biological applications at the cellular level, the scale of microchannels corresponds well with the native cellular microenvironment. The volume of cells to extracellular fluid in microsystems is similar to in vivo conditions, the next advantage of microchips. Moreover, a special architecture of microdevices gives the possibility for control of growth factors, reagents, and oxygen inside the system.
