Mit Tropfenmikrofluidik zu Hochgeschwindigkeits-Biotechnologie

Kästner, Bianka; Hengoju, Sundar; Svensson, Carl-Magnus; Figge, Marc Thilo; Rosenbaum, Miriam A.

In recent years, microfluidic technologies were introduced for massively parallel cultivation and screening approaches. Individual cells can easily be singularized, compartmentalized, and cultivated from mixed inocula using droplet microfluidics. The generation of millions of droplets in a high-throughput manner enables studying diverse samples and combining the evaluation of genetic and phenotypic variants. It is a powerful tool to explore and exploit natural metabolic diversity.
