ICBA 2017

2nd int’l Conference on  Biomaterials and Applications (ICBA 2017)   Oral presentation: Automated microphysiometer for assessment of cytotoxicity Cytotoxic properties of new chemicals or drugs have to be assessed before they enter into the market. Here we present an automated method to investigate the interaction of soluble substances with living cells. Living cells are cultivated […]
