Developing a Microwell Array for Improved Cystic Fibrosis Treatment

ChE Professor Ming Su and Assistant Research Professor Sidi Bencherif were awarded a patent for “Coordinately-ordered single cells with individual identities for high-throughput assay.”

Abstract Source: USPTO

Disclosed is a technology for assaying individual cells, in which the identity of each individual cell in an ordered array is determined from coordinates assigned to it, and can be readout at high throughput with microscope. The method is able to test responses of millions of identical cells in multiple chemical and physical processes with superior statistics power to facilitate deep data mining.
