  1. 1. Design improvements for an Organ-on-chip system : Implementation and evaluation of a bubble trap

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för materialvetenskap

    Author : Albin Jonasson; Linnéa Soto Carlsson; [2022]
    Keywords : Organ-on-chip; Microfluidics; Lab-on-chip; Lab-on-a-chip; bubble trap; epithelial; endothelial; cells; biomedical engineering; chip; TEER; Mikrofluidik; labb-på-chip; organ-på-chip; medicinsk teknik; medicinteknik; TEER; bubbelfälla; epitelceller; endotelceller;

    Abstract : The field of organ-on-chip is a relatively new area of research and builds upon the principle of engineering microfluidic systems to mimic the body’s internal environment as precisely as possible. Eventually these models could hopefully simulate whole organ-systems and enable the examination of the cell’s or organ’s reaction to foreign substances like new pharmaceuticals in a better way than current models.

  2. 2. Development of microelectrodes for electrical measurements in a microfluidic system

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Biomedicinsk teknik

    Author : Emma Thomée; [2017]
    Keywords : Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Transendothelial electrical resistance (TEER) measurements are used to quantitatively monitor cell barrier formation in in vitro models of the blood-brain barrier. TEER measurements in microfluidic in vitro systems are technically problematic and have suffered from poor measurement reproducibility. READ MORE

  3. 3. Exposure of Caco-2 cells to PFOS and PFOA

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för medicinsk biokemi och mikrobiologi

    Author : Anika Neskovic; [2007]
    Keywords : CCM; perfluorooctane sulfonic acid; perfluorooctanoic acid; trans epithelial resistance; 14C-mannitol;

    Abstract : The toxicity of perfluorooctane sulfonic acid (PFOS) and perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) was measured. When Caco-2 cells from human adenocarcinoma are cultivated on a filter a monolayer is formed with properties similar to human duodenum epithelium. The Caco-2 cells grown on filter were exposed to the environmental contaminants PFOS and PFOA. READ MORE
