Lab-on-a-chip tools for neuroscience

ultra low noise amplifier for magnetic lab-on-a-chip (T. Costa et al, TBioCAS 2016)

Leveraging on the clinical potential of LIFU neuromodulation, the influence of focused ultrasound on a plethora of biological processes is still heavily debated, with several mechanisms, often contradictory, being hypothesized. To provide a magnified window of observation of these biological processes, we engineer lab-on-a-chip microtechnologies to modulate and record cellular and ion-channel activity at the micro-scale.
