Understanding the response of cells to a compound is crucial for determining their potential uses and effects. However, most of the current methods are neither capable to know whether the samples are delivered inside a single cell, in which amount, nor how a specific concentration leads to a specific effect. With this webinar, we will give an insight into how FluidFM extends the current research possibilities through single cell nano-injection. You will learn about the advantages of true single cell experiments in key scientific areas such as gene editing (e.g. with CRISPR-Cas) or drug development.
The speakers will cover three unique methods:
Nano-injection into single cells
Injected volume measurement of these cells and
Long-term single cell observation.
They will also show examples of how researchers can benefit from these methods for their own applications.
The webinar will include a live demo of the FluidFM BOT Bio Series, showing how easy it is to inject any solution into single cells in adherent culture, quantify the injected amount for each single cell and observe the cells’ reaction.
Who should attend the webinar:
Cell and molecular biologists, pharmacologists, biochemists, scientists working with CRISPR.
Key learning objectives:
Get to know FluidFM as a tool for single cell research.
Understand how FluidFM nano-injection works and how it empowers true single cell research.
Understand how to measure the volumes injected into single cells and which applications can benefit from it.
See first-hand how easily FluidFM experiments can be setup and conducted.
20' Introduction on FluidFM technology and nano-injection, observation and volume measurement.
20' Live demo: nano-injection of Lucifer Yellow and measurement of the injected volume.
Meet the webinar speakers:
Dr. Maria Milla, Life Sciences Application Scientist
Dr. Maria Milla obtained her PhD in Biochemistry at the Autonomous University of Barcelona (Spain), while studying the structure of mammalian metaphase chromosomes. After two postdoctoral stages in material sciences (ICMAB/CSIC, Barcelona) and single-particle analysis (ETH Zürich), she joined the Customer Support team at Cytosurge. With her scientific background, covering a wide range of molecular biology and microscopy techniques, she has an excellent set of knowledge and skills enabling her to find optimal solutions for our customers in the field of Life Science.
Dr. Paul Monnier, Life Sciences Application Scientist
Dr. Paul Monnier obtained his PhD in molecular biology from University Pierre and Marie Curie in Paris, while working on non-coding RNA involved in epigenetic growth control of the embryo. After a postdoc at ETH Zurich, working on stem cells and X-chromosome inactivation, he joined Cytosurge to set up their new biology laboratory. Here, he develops applications and protocols related to FluidFM technology in the field of Life Sciences. He also keeps close contact with FluidFM users, for support and training.
