GeSiM has developed both microfluidic hardware and a dedicated media supply and control unit for a bioreactor project. It is for the dynamic long-term culture of different human sub-organoids, for studies of the interaction of consumer-relevant synthetic or natural substances with the human body.
Microelectrode arrays, also called multielectrode arrays (MEAs), for the analysis of electrically active cells are an easy-to-use replacement of the patch clamp technique. The specialty of GeSiM’s MEA system is the integration of the MEA chip into a microfluidic system.
To hold and move cells without surface contacts is highly desirable in confocal and conventional microscopy. Immobilizing of cells often causes a loss of function and can trigger unwanted signals. With this in mind EVOTEC TECHNOLOGIES used GeSiM microfluidic chips for dielectrophoretic manipulation of single cell. Contact us for more information...
A joint European research project explores ways to "reprogram" individual cells by nanoscaled devices. GeSiM contributes by delivering microfluidic hardware as well as nano-imprinting technology.
In collaboration with the University of Leipzig GeSiM developed transparent microfluidic flow-through-cells with embedded optical fibres. The objective of the project is to investigate the elastic properties of the cytoskeleton of different cells.
