We present a bi-functional magnetic microcarrier design, intended for bioassay applications. The chemical functionalisation on the gold side of the microcarriers is optimised using mixed self-assembled monolayers. In-flow quartz crystal microbalance measurements of the formation kinetics are discussed. Fluorescence results are presented.
The immune system is a striking example of an integrated information system, engaged in coordinated host-protective activities. Organs-on-chip approach (OOC) models allow the direct simultaneous observation of hundreds of different cells, moving, interacting and responding to signals coming from the microenvironment nearby, that give access to a number of parameters describing the system that must be properly measured and elaborated.READ MORE
