Stiffness could be an important index for evaluating the vitality of cell sheet. This paper challenges the measurement of stiffness of transparent cell sheet in culture liquid without taking it out from petri dish. The system is composed of a micro air nozzle for supplying an air jet and a regular reflective type laser sensor for measuring the the deformation of transparent cell sheet. This system is called as Cell Sheet Stiffness Sensing system (CS3 system). When an air jet is given to a cell sheet in culture liquid, it pushes away the liquid toward the outer direction at initial phase and reaches the surface of cell sheet. Without any switching motion, the air jet continuously imparts a force to the surface of cell sheet so that the sensor can measure the stiffness of the cell sheet.
