Simple and rapid on-chip cell and bacteria culturing and analysis
What is it about?
A microfluidic chip for simple cell seeding, medium supply in static and continuous cultures, oxygen control and fluorescent analysis.
Why is it important?
We present an innovative concept for culturing and analyzing microorganisms in parallel on a microfluidic platform. The device enables convenient handling for applications in rapid microbiological and antibiotic testing. With the present design we overcome a number of critical issues in the culturing of suspended cells, including autonomous priming, sample preparation, capturing microorganisms - fabrication resolution, in-situ drug delivery, nutrients supply and oxygen control.
