Resumen:
Una universidad técnica rumana busca investigadores en el campo de nano y microtecnologías. El objetivo es participar en un proyecto para desarrollar un método totalmente nuevo de manipulación de fluidos en sistemas microfluídicos inspirado por la naturaleza, específicamente por los mecanismos encontrados en ciliados, que son un conjunto de cilios sobre la superficie externa de microorganismos o la superficie de órganos internos concretos. Se buscan pymes y centros de I+D con el fin de participar en programas de I+D comunitarios e internacionales.

Tittle:
Nature inspired micro fluidic manipulation system
Summary:
A Technical University from Romania is looking for research partners in the field of Nano and Microtechnologies.
The current project deals with a completely novel method of fluid manipulation technology in micro fluidic systems, inspired by nature. The partners sought are innovative SMEs and R-Y-D performers in the field of Nano and Microtechnologies in EU/International R-Y-D Programs.
Description:
Although, initially, micro fluidics started as an engineering research domain, later on, it extended beyond the traditional area of development of inkjet head and pressure sensors to areas such as drug delivery, chemical synthesis, protein crystallization, cell culture, point-of-care diagnostics, genetic sequencing, drug discovery, genomics, and proteomics.
However, local fluid manipulation and/or mixing is very hard to achieve, i.e. the fluid in the micro fluidic system is driven or mixed in a global, uniform, sense. In many biosensors it would be very advantageous to be able to locally manipulate the fluid, i.e. to achieve local mixing or routing of fluids.
The current project deals with a completely novel method of fluid manipulation technology in micro fluidic systems, inspired by nature, namely by the mechanisms found in ciliates, that is an array of beating cilia over the external surface of micro-organisms or the surface of particular inner organs.
The partners sought are innovative SMEs and R-Y-D performers in the field of Nano and Microtechnologies in EU/International R-Y-D Programs.
