PARTICLES WITHOUT CAVITY
Solid, spherical microparticles are:
Made with PEG
Can be functionalized with various peptides, affinity agents, etc.
Compatible with most cells types and flow cytometers.
You can use solid particles at a micrometer scale for a wide variety of applications.
Perform cheap, easy high-throughput immunoassays.
Advantages: Able to perform high-quality, high-throughput diagnostic assays without the need for large pieces of equipment and/or skilled expertise. Only requires these particles, oil, and standard flow cytometers
Options: These particles can contain functional groups (e.g. biotin) such that capture groups and amplification agents can be attached.
Method: By agitating the particles with oil and solution containing your desired target, you can form droplets instrument-free and amplify signals to perform immunoassays at a digital level. The particles can then be run through FACS for screening.
2. Tissue Engineering:
Anneal particles together to form a scaffold for tissue engineering applications.
Advantages: The uniform pores in between particles provide space for cells to grow and for the diffusion of gas/nutrients, providing better cell growth characteristics than other tissue scaffolds.
