Project Title
Mag-Pen
Design Challenge
Using magnetized cells, researchers at Nano 3D Biosciences, Inc. have developed a method to culture cells into spheroid structures that are more physiologically relevant with regards to gene expression, cell signaling, and morphology. However, with the development of 3-D cell cultures, many more issues of sample handling have yet to be resolved.Thus, our overall objective is to create a magnetic pen that can levitate and transfer a 3-D cell culture between petri dishes, wells or plates.
