Measuring cells quickly

Dear Sir or Madam,

Have you already squeezed an immune cell today? Of course not, it is much to small for this! But the start-up ZELLMECHANIK DRESDEN will deliver the right tool to do this to you in the future: You will find out how well an immune cell can be deformed with the AcCellerator. Learn in our interview what this is good for, how it works and what a channel and a speed trap have to do with this.

Have a nice week,

Timo Roth
Editorial team

These days, smartphones and wearables of all kinds more or less "incidentally" collect lots of personal data about our lives. Many people have privacy and security concerns – and rightfully so – especially if mountains of data fall into the wrong hands. But what if patients collect their own data and get help to use it for their own purposes? The STEADY project for people with depression takes this approach.

Cells in the speed trap – diagnosis in a matter of seconds

A drop of blood provides a lot of valuable information. However, it takes several hours to analyze the blood of a patient and make a diagnosis. This takes away a lot of time that's crucial for treatment. A new method intends to considerably speed up this process by testing the cells in the blood in terms of their deformability and immune response.
