Webinar — Keep your Flow!
How I set up microfluidic assays to gain the most information from a single experiment
In this webinar, Markus Bosteen will show you how he maximizes the amount of information gained from a single flow experiment!
About this event
Cardiovascular research thrives on identifying new ways to treat cardiovascular diseases with the end goal of bringing new and effective medicines to patients.
So does Markus Bosteen, Senior Scientist at the Department of Vascular Biology at Novo Nordisk, who focuses his research on endothelial responses to various types of flow. He aims to understand better how pathological flow patterns can affect the progression of atherosclerosis – a severe cardiovascular disease affecting many diabetes patients worldwide.
Atherosclerosis affects the inner lining of arteries to thicken by a build-up of plaque,
therefore potentially fatally restricting and blocking the blood flow.
Gain real-time imaging data in your microfluidic assays
Markus describe his customized setup combining the ibidi flow system together with both Electrical Cell-Substrate Impedance Sensing (ECIS) as well as real-time holographic imaging with the HoloMonitor® system.
In addition, you will have the chance to hear more about the products utilized in this flow experiment setup at the end of the presentation.
Topics of this webinar:
- Introduction to arterial blood flow and flow sensing by endothelial cells
- Many data examples of endothelial response to flow
- Setup microfluidic assays combining the ibidi Pump System and μ-Slides with ECIS and the HoloMonitor Live Cell Imaging system using holographic microscopy
About the speakers
Markus Bosteen, Senior Scientist at the Department of Vascular Biology at Novo Nordisk, is this event’s main speaker.
” I studied Molecular Biomedicine and graduated from the University of Copenhagen in 2011.
First, I got into vascular research during my bachelor’s and continued this research focus throughout my master’s program and also later during my Ph.D. (degree obtained in 2016 from the University of Copenhagen), focusing on endothelial function during inflammation, angiogenesis, and mouse models of atherosclerosis.
Later on, I worked extensively with cell-based assay and immunoassay development and validation as a Scientist and Research Scientist at both AGC Biologics, Bio Porto Diagnostics, and Ferring Pharmaceuticals.
Since 2021, I have been a Senior Scientist at Novo Nordisk dept. of Vascular biology.”
Peggy Benisch, Head of Sales at ibidi, will briefly share key information about the ibidi flow system for successful microfluidic assay setups in your lab. Learn more about your options to simulate various physiological conditions in blood vessels by combining the ibidi Pump System with different channel slides.
Lisa Bodily, Communication Manager at PHI, will summarize the take-home information on the HoloMonitor® live-cell analysis system. Learn about further applications and how the technology provides researchers with non-invasive and quantitative real-time data on cell cultures down to a single-cell level.
