Experts in Custom Laboratory Automation

By: Fraunhofer USA CMI / Feb 21, 2020 3:57:35 PM / Biomedical Engineering

Whether it is for analysis of food quality, food safety, or tissue-based diagnostics, isolating viable primary cells extracted from plant and animal tissues are essential for testing. Companies currently use manual means to dissociate tissues in order to extract these cells. A technician spends time preparing an organ by cutting the tissue with scissors. This is followed by 35 minute..

A practical approach for the optimization of channel integrity

A reduced channel height in microfluidic Lab-on-a-Chip (LOC) devices enables a reduction in the required volume of sample and reagents. LOC devices are most often manufactured by microstructuring a planar substrate and subsequently sealing it with a cover film. However, shallow chip designs, made from polymers, are sensitive to channel deformation during the sealing of the microfluidic device...

Continuous-flow qRT-PCR for rapid Ebola identification

By: Fraunhofer USA CMI / Jan 1, 2018 4:38:00 PM / Biomedical Engineering

-- Research Scientists discuss the development of a low-cost POC RT-PCR platform that accomplishes the detection of RNA pathogens (Ebola, Zika, Chikungunya virus). Rapid ID of Ebola for low resource areas -- A major challenge of diagnosing infectious diseases in low resource areas is a lack of fully equipped laboratories for quantitative detection of pathogens. Even in high resource areas such..
