April 2014 - Biomonar Project Completed
The FP7 Project, BIOMONAR, focussed around biosensors is now nearly complete. Thanks to everyone involved, and particularly Prof. Raewyn Town (University of Southern Denmark) for leading the consortium. Prof. Shimshon Belkin (Hebrew University of Jerusalem) commissioned this hand painted BIOMONAR tile from Garo and Sonia Sandrouni of the Armenian Ceramics Gallery in Jerusalem.
Cell culture is a critical part of diagnostics, biotechnology and contributes to the quality of health and our environment. There is a strong need to develop faster, more automatable methods of growing and assaying cells.
To take the example of microbiology, the classic method of growing bacteria and fungi is the Petri dish that is hardly changed in centuries. The Petri dish was developed in an era of low throughput and is designed for skilled manual labour. We present a set of advanced disposable culture formats - just click on the movie for an idea of what we can achieve for your laboratory.
