Dear partner;

 

microLIQUID will be at the 2017 AACC Clinical Lab Expo this August 1-3 in San Diego, CA.

 

AACC is a global scientific and medical professional organization dedicated to clinical laboratory science and its application to healthcare. Their leadership in education, advocacy and collaboration helps lab professionals adapt to change and do what they do best: provide vital insight and guidance so patients get the care they need.

 

On behalf of our company, if you are attending to AACC, we want to take advantage  to have a meeting with you in order to talk about our common interests.

 

We will be pleased to invite you to join our booth #630,  where we will be showcasing our latest offerings and technologies, and we will have our top product experts on hand to answer your questions.

 

Looking forward to seeing you.

Advantages of using microfluidics for chemotaxis

Advantages of using microfluidics for chemotaxis

Microfluidics: Chemotaxis and ADVANTAGES

it is known microfluidics nowadays is revolutionizing the way the motile behaviour of cells are studied.

It has enabled observations at high spatial and temporal resolution is carefully controlled microenvironments.

Taking into account both of the parts, chemotaxis and microfluidics, there are some advantages when using them two together:
– Presents experimental challenges that are not observed on chemotaxis studies of surface-adherent cells.
– Generate steady, arbitrarily shaped chemical gradients.
– Unique control over the chemoattractant gradient and the migration environment of cells.
– Provide spatial and temporal control over a reproducible chemical environment.
– Enables building well defined and stable chemical gradients at cellular length scales.
– Provide a platform for quantifying cellular responses at cellular and molecular levels.

Microfluidics Application: What is Chemotaxis?

Chemotaxis with Microfluidics

Chemotaxis with Microfluidics: When an organism moves in response to a chemical stimulus it is said that Chemotaxis has happened

Microfluidics Application: Chemotaxis 

When an organism moves in response to a chemical stimulus it is said that Chemotaxis has happened.

Due to some chemicals that are in the environment the organisms, such as Somatic cells, bacteria, single-cell or multicellular organisms, direct their movements.

When the chemotaxis movements occur toward a higher concentration of the chemical, it is said that is a positive movement.

On the contrary, when the movement is done in the opposite direction, toward the lowest concentration, it is said that is a negative movement.

In addition, if it is nondirectional or randomly directed, the chemotaxis will be called Chemokinesis.

Chemotaxis is done with two independent chemoattractants.

Even if they are independent, we can say that they are interrelated processes-motility and directionality and both of them are regulated by extracellular stimuli.

Electrophoresis with microfluidics:  an analytical method

Electrophoresis and Microfluidics

Electrophoresis is an analytical method which is applied for the separation and characterization of proteins, nucleic acids and subcellular-sized particles such as viruses and small organelles.

 

Its principle is that the charged particles of a sample migrate in an applied electrical field.
Electrophoresis of positively charged particles (cations) is called cataphoresis, and on the other hand, electrophoresis of negatively charged particles (anions) is called anaphoresis.

Electrophoresis is a technique used in laboratories to separate macromolecules based on size.

Flow Cytometry : Advantages of using Microfluidics

Positive aspects about Flow Cytometer based on Microfluidics:

1. To have a high purity and recovery for the sorted cell population.
2. To sort based on an intracellular characteristic in which magnetic beads would not have access.
3. To sort cell labelled with fluorescent probes for nuclear or other intracellular targets.
4. To have information about cell surface molecules.
5. To sort different receptors even if they are low in density.
6. To sort cells according to absence, density or presence of the receptors.
