The nomination for Laser-Sharp Research goes to Mäki-Mikola et al. at University of Helsinki for their development of a dynamic cell culturing platform for light-activation studies. The developed platform has a flow chamber connected to a peristaltic pump, which creates a flow that resembles the natural fluid flow at the cell surfaces. ML6500 laser was used to release calcein from liposomes to validate the suitability of the platform for light-triggered drug release. Compared to traditional static cell culture systems, this dynamic platform enables more physiologically relevant studies and can improve clinical translatability of nanoparticle research.
Modulight is very happy to be supporting this research. We would like to deliver our warmest congratulations to the research team!#LaserSharpResearch #liposomes #lightactivation #cellculture #flowchamber
