From diagnosing diseases to growing organs in miniature environments to effective delivery of drugs to their targets, microfludics opens the door to a big world of potential in medicine. Read the last of our microfludics series to discover how the simple process of flowing liquids through microchannels can harbour an explosive innovative potential.
In this second article of the microfluidics series we talk about how the combination of life sciences research and engineering in the form of microfluidic devices can create wonders in the understanding and use of stem cells and their extraordinary properties.
Mimicking and understanding the environment molecules, cells and organs work in requires creative thinking and sublime engineering. Microfluidics technology is a product of such a process and makes it possible for researchers to achieve results that cannot be achieved by other means. Read the first instalment of our new 3-part series on microfluidics here to see what we mean.
