Microfluidics enable precise liquid handling in laminar flow patterns. Using the capabilities of our innovation toolbox, we empower you to make novel bioliquid handling cartridges that are otherwise impossible to fabricate. Such cartridges, with integrated chips can later be employed in point-of-care diagnostics, lab-on-a-chip and cell processing applications.
Example - our high-fidelity microfluidic mixers eliminate the need for manual intervention and operator bias and tackle mixing limitations of microfluidic systems.
3D cell cultivation
Three-dimensional cultivation systems offer an increased surface-to-volume ratio, reducing the footprint and costs. Moreover, a 3D environment can improve the biological relevance and cell characteristics. Cell and gene therapies, drug screening and tissue engineering are only some of the possible application areas. Our LifeFab engineers assist in optimising both the material properties and the volumetric structure to leverage the full potential of the envisioned bioprocess.
Example - cross section of a scaffold printed into a cell culture compartment.
The innovative, modular combination of different unit operations into singleuse devices opens new avenues to enable scalable bioprocesses. Closing and automating the process reduces costly cleanroom space and operator interventions. By integrating custom inks, chip technology and unique 3D architectures, previously unattainable manipulations for regenerative medicine and diagnostics become possible, making novel healthcare solutions more accessible to patients.
Example - cartridge integrating several unit operations of a bioprocess.
