In bioengineering the reduction of reagents consumption in the experimentation and the management of low volume liquid samples are crucial. In this way, microfluidics constitute a key technique offering the possibility of developing micro reactors, micro channels, micro chamber, micro valves and pumps, etc.
We have used plastic and polymeric materials in combination with the standard techniques of micro and nanofabrication in silicon, pyrex or ceramic substrates.
Microfluidics is essential also for the development of tools for cell studies. These techniques are excellent for the development of devices for cell migration analysis, tissue engineering, single or multiple cell analysis, cell mechanics, etc.
Single Cell Analysis
- Cell separation module to obtain viable single cells.
- Non destructing cell transportation.
- Multipurpose microchamber for single cell analysis.
