What we focus on
• We have studied novel methods in flow cytometry and cell sorting based on electrical impedance analysis and dielectric properties of the cells. • We also develop micro-bioreactors for on-chip co-culture of cells in drug screening and toxicology applications. • We are developing devices for bioelectronic implants such as micro-electrodes for neural recordings and stimulation, biomechanical sensors for eye pressure or articular implants. • Our group has been involved in the valorization of research by creation of several start-up companies.
