FluidFM – A Novel Toolbox in Neuroscience
Webinar by LAN & Cytosurge
Dr. Paul Monnier from Cytosurge will show how FluidFM paves the way to novel research at the single-cell level in neuroscience.
Studying cellular mechanisms underlying the function of the nervous system is of paramount importance to better comprehend neurological disorders.
FluidFM provides a wide range of innovative methods; from controlled patterned growth to single-cell manipulation, stimulation, and analysis in a gentle manner perfectly suited for sensitive cells such as neurons.
In this webinar, we provide an overview of the extensive functionalities that the FluidFM technology offers for cellular neurobiology:
Pattern: Prepare your template for customized neuronal networks by printing surface patterns.
Pick & Place: Pick your neuron and place it at a specific position.
Stimulate: precisely deposit neurotransmitters, ions, or toxins on a specific cell and position, without the need of tedious caging / uncaging strategies.
Inject: deliver any soluble compound - e.g. CRISPR RNPs - into the cytosol or directly into the nucleus.
Analyze: Investigate the single-cell content by extracting cytosolic or nuclear content on the spot.
