The working group "Cell Culture and Microsystems Technology" under the leadership of Dr. Janina Bahnemann is focusing on the production and integration of 3D-printed microfluidic systems and the development of innovative biosensors for applications in the field of cell culture technology.
The German Research Foundation (DFG) supports the project “Development of integrated continuous flow systems for transient transfection, cultivation and monitoring of mammalian cells” by Dr. Janina Bahnemann in the Emmy Noether programme. Thus, this working group is one of a few research groups at the Leibniz University of Hannover receiving this funding.
Within the framework of this research project, the associates of the junior research group use high-resolution 3D printers to develop microfluidic systems that are used in cell culture technology. A major focus is the development of new aptamer-based sensors for the monitoring of cell culture systems and the design, production and integration of a new lab-on-a-chip (LoC) that enables continuous transient gene transfer to host cells for the flexible production of recombinant proteins.
