Nanotechnology-based tools having high sensitivity and low invasiveness are holding great promises as new biomedical devices for single cell manipulation. The fully electrical read-out as well as the ease and low cost of fabrication are unique features that give nanopipette technology enormous potential. In this talk Paolo will present a single-cell manipulation platform that uses scanning microscopy techniques to position the nanopipette with nanoscale precision, and electro-wetting to aspirate minute amount of cytoplasmic material from individual cells without comprising cell viability.
Paolo graduated in 2008 from the Grenoble Insititute of Technology, Grenoble (France) with a thesis on the surface modification and characterization of boron-doped diamond (BDD) electrodes. Paolo joined the Pourmand's Lab on 2008 working on the development of a nanopipette-based platform for single cell in vivo immunoassay. In his free time he enjoys surfing and rock climbing.
