Project objectives

The objective of the project is design, fabrication and testing a micro-electro-fluidic system for biological cells separation and for membrane permeabilization by electroporation to release cellular content for laboratory or research analysis.

Specific objectives:
- Design, simulation and optimization of experimental model of micro-electro-fluidic system
Technological design and fabrication
- Microphysical characterization; Synthesis, characterization and functionalization of ferromagnetic nanoparticles for cells capture
- Cells preparation and characterization of dielectric and biophysical properties before and after electroporation;

Testing micro-electro-fluidic system, electroporated cells quantification by alternate methods (electrical, optical, flow citometry) and correlation of the results.
