Poster on single cell printing for single cell real-time PCR wins Best Poster Award at the Biosensors Conference 2014
For his Poster on “Non-contact single cell printing for single cell real-time PCR", Fabian Stumpf (HSG-IMIT) and his colleagues from the Department of Microsystems Engineering (IMTEK), the research cluster BIOSS Centre for Biological Signalling Studies and BioFluidix were awarded the best poster award at the Biosensors conference.
The Biosensors Conference took place in Melbourne (Australia) from May, 27 until 30. Out of 650 posters, the jury selected 3 winning posters.
He presented a proof-of-concept study about real-time single cell PCR in a commercial off-the-shelf thermocycler. The cells were automatically separated with the “Single cell Printer” (SCP) and transferred to PCR reaction chamber. The SCP technology is a technology used in the life sciences for printing single living cells in order to enable them for further analysis. Applications are mainly cancer and stem cell research but also technologies for the production of mono-clonal cell lines. The technology was developed within the EU project PASCA and is based on the NanoJet® dispensing technology of BioFluidix.
