3D-printed All-liquid "Lab-on-a-Chip" Could Transform Drug Candidate Screens

3D-printed All-liquid "Lab-on-a-Chip" Could Transform Drug Candidate Screens

To make the 3D-printable fluidic device, Berkeley Lab researchers designed a specially patterned glass substrate. When two liquids - one containing nanoscale clay particles, another containing polymer particles - are printed onto the substrate, they come together at the interface of the two liquids and within milliseconds form a very thin channel or tube about 1 millimeter in diameter.

Why Can’t Bertrand Might Cry? Missing Water Channels Could Be the Answer

News

Scientists have shown that cells from children with NGLY1 deficiency--a rare disorder first described in 2012--lack sufficient water channel proteins called aquaporins. The discovery may help explain the disorder's wide-ranging symptoms--including the inability to produce tears, seizures and developmental delays--and opens new avenues to find therapies to treat the disorder.
