Microfluidic Devices for

Nematode Neurobiology

High throughput micro injection chip mold for C. elegans transgenic research.

 

This prototype allowed the functional testing of an inline microfluidic platform to perform in-situ microinjections on C. elegans on a scalable production line scenario. The mold allowed fine tuning of 50μm to 70μm channel widths with side wall < 5μm to pierce and perform microinjections.

Stimuli Delivery in

fMRI Studies

Sanitizable fMRI-compatible custom designed gustometer manifold.

 

Completely non-metallic, universally positionable, autoclavable mouthpiece designed, prototyped, and tested in house for functional neuroimaging while delivering taste stimuli.
