Institut Curie: Behind the technology

 

TECHNOLOGY

PRIMO bioengineering technology gives cell biologists the flexibility they need to create and fine-tune in vitro cell microenvironments for more reliable and reproducible cell models. It relies on a contactless and maskless photopatterning module (PRIMO) and a dedicated software (Leonardo). The platform can be used to structure cell culture substrates through photopolymerization and to functionalize any cell culture substrate surfaces (stiff or soft, flat or microstructured) through micropatterning.

 

APPLICATIONS

Alvéole's technology allows to better study the behavior and development of living cells in a broad range of applications, such as: cytoskeleton dynamics, cell adhesion force measurement, cell confinement, cell migration, tissue engineering, spheroids.
