Microfluidics Video Interviews
How Fluigent's customers, partners and Key Opinion Leader use microfluidics to achieve outstanding results in their technology experiments.
Doing PhD with Fluigent 2021: Research on Honey by Daniel Kraus (Jena, Germany)
One of our PhD students Daniel is doing his postgraduate research on honey at the Leibniz Institute of Photonic Technology. Using the microfluidic set-up, including microfluidic chip and Fluigent pressure pumps, Daniel can examine the pollens to find out whether the origin of honey is natural or faked. The high-throughput microfluidic technique enables honey particles to pass with the same velocity through the microfluidic channel, which makes for a better more efficient analysis that goes beyond the state of the art.
Hans-Knöll-Institut, New Antibiotics, Cultivation in Droplets
Today we are visiting Leibniz Institut for Natural Products Research and Infection Biology (Hans Knöll Institute), to be precise – Bio Pilot Plant Department. Our speakers are Prof. Dr. Miriam Agler-Rosenbaum (Head of Bio Pilot Plant Department), Dr. Sundar Hengoju, Dr. Dede Man. How are they trying to find new antibiotics? Why is this important for infection biology? How do they research natural products? What are these exactly? How does microfluidics allow them to cultivate microbes in droplets? How does the technology increase their efficiency millions of times over? In which cases pressure pumps are better than syringe pumps? How to stabilize microfluidic droplets? Watch this episode to find out. And that’s just one story told. There are many possible applications for microfluidics. Stay tuned!
Creating an in-vitro approach to study neuronal cells
Meet Maxime Poinsot and explore his research story, where he creates an in-vitro approach to study neuronal cells and their architectures, along with the expertise of Fluigent.
Maxime has been working at Fluigent on an in-vitro “brain-on-chip” platform as a PhD student at the institute of Neurosciences of la Timone, Marseille, France.
Exciting Insights into Bionengineering and Organoids Platform!
Meet Gaspard Pardon and his team. At the forefront of innovation, the Bionengineering and Organoids Platform, led by Gaspard Pardon, is making remarkable strides in the field. They collaborate with esteemed institutions like EPFL and the University Hospital of Lausanne, with their hub at the AGORA Cancer Research Center in Lausanne.
Together with his dynamic team – Marzena Walaszczyk and Aidan Bedford, they explore a wide spectrum of areas:
✅Advanced 3D cellular models
Their passion revolves around understanding cells in-depth, and they’ve recently switched to FLUIGENT Pressure Pumps to gain precise control over flow and pressure, a game-changer in their research. We had the pleasure of diving into their world, from cancer cells to the latest microfluidics trends.
A Gut-on-chip Model to study Shigella Propagation Mechanisms
Creating an organ-on-chip model to replicate the human colon mucosal barrier interface in vitro and to study propagation mechanisms of Shigella, a pathogenic bacteria.
Meet Elise Delannoy, a postdoctoral researcher at Institut Pasteur (France, Lille), and explore her fascinating research story!
She designed a gut-on-chip model to replicate the human colon mucosal barrier interface in vitro, along with the expertise of Fluigent.
