Microfluidic platforms for live-cell imaging and bio/pathomimetic tissue models
Background:Methodologies to image and quantify tissue models using high-content analysis (HCI) and functional analyses of 3D avatars are needed as such avatars better recapitulate the phenotype of pathobiological processes and better predict efficacy of, and resistance to, a wide variety of therapies. Furthermore, changes in morphometry, viability,...

Marangoni Optofluidic Tweezers (MOT)
There is currently a great deal of interest in using small droplets as containers for chemical reactions. Optical methods for droplet manipulation are attractive because they offer control without an on chip structure; however forces from optical tweezers tend to be in the pN range. Wayne State University researchers have developed a new method...

Nano-beaker array formation process and its use for high-throughput loading and crystallization screening and other lab-on-the-chip applications
Wayne State University researchers have invented a novel process to make array patterns and its use for high-throughput screening of crystallization conditions, liquid solution applications, and other lab-on-the-chip applications. The formation process is a variation of “particle lithography” in which microparticles such as polystyrene microparticles...
