Multi-Organ Chip Could Render Use of Animal-Based Experiments Superfluous

Multi-Organ Chip Could Render Use of Animal-Based Experiments Superfluous

In medical research, animal-based experiments have thus far been a necessary evil. Fraunhofer researchers have developed a highly promising alternative, however: They are developing a mini-organism inside a chip. This way, complex metabolic processes within the human body can be analyzed realistically. [More]

Tiny Microfluidic Device Helps Analyze Behavior of Blood from Sickle Cell Disease Patients

Tiny Microfluidic Device Helps Analyze Behavior of Blood from Sickle Cell Disease Patients

Patients with sickle cell disease often suffer from painful attacks known as vaso-occlusive crises, during which their sickle-shaped blood cells get stuck in tiny capillaries, depriving tissues of needed oxygen. Blood transfusions can sometimes prevent such attacks, but there are currently no good ways to predict when a vaso-occlusive crisis, which can last for several days, is imminent. [More]

IPC PAS Microfluidic System Enables Serial Studies of Cell Membranes

Life processes depend fundamentally on phenomena occurring on the membranes separating cells from their environment. [More]
New Microfluidic System to Study How Proteins Form and Lose Their Natural Folded Structures

New Microfluidic System to Study How Proteins Form and Lose Their Natural Folded Structures

Collaborating scientists from The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) and the University of California (UC) San Diego have developed a powerful new system for studying how proteins and other biological molecules form and lose their natural folded structures. [More]
Short Film on Magnetotactic Bacteria Wins First Prize at MicroTAS Video Competition

Short Film on Magnetotactic Bacteria Wins First Prize at MicroTAS Video Competition

The inaugural MicroTAS Video Competition, run by microfluidics specialist Dolomite and Lab on a Chip, and supported by the Chemical and Biological Microsystems Society, saw first prize awarded to an enterprising – and highly creative – entry submitted by Tijmen Hageman from the Korean Institute of Science and Technology (KIST) Europe GmbH in collaboration with the University of Twente.
