Forschung / Research focus

The Microfluid Biotechnique Research Group is focused on the development of microfluid devices, sensors and optimization of microfluid screening processes, cultivation and characterization of

  •     Soil Microorganisms,

  •     Photosynthesis-active microorganisms (cyanobacterium, algae) and

  •     Plant cell cultures (microspores, protoplasts)

Forschungsgebiet: Anwendung der Mikrofluidtechnik für die Pflanzenbiotechnologie

Research focus: Application of microfluid technology for plant cells: The goal of her research is to optimize a microfluid platform for cultivation of various plant cell cultures, such as protoplasts and somatic cells. Subsequently, she investigate effect of external factors (growth regulators, salts content, light etc.) on the early divisions at nearly single cell level.

Induction of embryogenic development in haploid microspore stem cells in droplet-based microfluidics

In a recently published study, together with University Freiburg, TU Ilmenau and Company ScreenSys, we did studies of droplet-based microfluidics for application in plant cells. Here, we present our droplet-based tube system suitable for implementation in an automated, miniaturized system with a microchannel as the central transport and processing unit to achieve induction of embryogenic development in haploid stem cells.
