Bioelectronics Workshop Berlin

30.11.2017 - 30.11.2017

Cell Separation between Microfluidics and Dielectrophoresis

Today, the elucidation of cellular populations is typically done by fluorescent labeling techniques, which may have severe effects on cell viability. This workshop approaches the topic by investigating the potentials of dielectrophoresis for cell analysis and characterization. Combined with microfluidics, it allows the on-line separation, manipulation and analysis during running bioprocesses down to the level of individual cells.

The workshop is part of the symposia series of the Joint Lab Bioelectronics and is organized jointly by IHP Frankfurt Oder, the TU Berlin and the Cluster HealthCapital. It will be moderated by Prof. Mario Birkholz and Prof. Peter Neubauer
