Project: Field Effect Transistor Array for Monitoring Electrical Activity From Single Cells in Culture

Acronym: BIOFET
Main Objective:
The core of this project is to bring together the necessary skills to perform assays on single cells in vivo. Key issues to be adressed are: (i) electrical coupling between the cell and the FET-probe (ii) the FET noise level, (iii) micromanipulators to get the cells into the correct position on the substrate (iii) how drugs or other chemical agents modify the general pattern of signalling.
