AS R&D Intern, your role will be to design and develop micro- and nanosystems for immunohematology.
- Automated blood analysis (blood grouping, antibody detection) devices use the so-called "gel cards" technique (“microfluidics”) as a mean for biological reactions.
- Gel cards are cheap, easy to use, and safe, but they require centrifugation step to transduce the biological reaction in an interpretable result, which increases the “time-to-result”.
- In the present project, microfluidics-based technologies will be explored to detect immunohematological reactions and compared with gel card technology. The internship will be carried out partially at EPFL and partially at Bio Rad Laboratories in Cressier FR (Switzerland) for a duration between 4 and 6 months.
- Practical experience in the field of medical device and in-vitro diagnostics
- A dynamic working environment with the latest biomedical technologies
