Opt-In: Partnership for a Millifluidic Device for 3-Dimensional Cellular Aggregates

Description :  

In collaboration with Millifluidica LLC, Louisiana Tech researchers seek to advance research and educational capabilities through the development of a prototype millifluidic device for three-dimensional cell aggregation, which complements recent advances in microfluidics and nanotechnology. The natural inclination of 50 or more cells to aggregate prompts the researchers to assist in the formation of aggregates for large-scale studies. The investigators` objectives include demonstrating the capabilities of magnetically-assembled millifluidic devices designed for nanometer and micron-sized studies, cellular studies, and in constructing three-dimensional spheroids in the absence of magnetic particles. The development of this prototype could assist in biophysical and developmental research while enhancing classroom educational experiences.
