Lab-on-a-chip to study single cells at EPFL

February 19, 2015

Scientists at EPFL have developed a new lab-on-a-chip technique to analyze single cells from entire population. The new method, which uses beads and microfluidics can change the way we study mixed populations of cells, such as those of [more...]

On-chip Sensors, Call for Paper

February 11, 2015

Dear Colleagues, The original idea of lab-on-a-chip (LOC) technology involves integrating on-chip sensors with advanced microfluidic technology to build miniaturized devices that can monitor bio/chemical responses in real time [more...]

A Step Toward Artificial Cells, Built from Silicon

December 14, 2014

In a step toward sophisticated artificial cells, scientists have engineered a silicon chip that can produce proteins from DNA, the most basic function of life. The system, though relatively simple, suggests a path to mimicking life with [more...]

Microfluidic Deformability-Based Cell Separation

November 2, 2014

Cell deformability is an important emerging bio-marker for a number of disease states. Deformability is indicative of underlying membrane, cytoskeletal or nuclear changes associated with a wide range of cell functional changes, such as [more...]

IMEC On-Chip Single Cell Sorter

August 27, 2014

Imagine a tool the size of a credit card that can analyze single cells with a throughput of more than 2 million cells per second. Moreover, the tool retains each cell of interest for downstream molecular analysis. The first steps towards [more...]

Sorting Cancer Cells with Acoustic Waves

August 27, 2014

Researchers from MIT, Pennsylvania State University, and Carnegie Mellon University have devised a new way to separate cells by exposing them to sound waves as they flow through a tiny channel. Their device, about the size of a dime, could [more...]
