MaxWell Biosystems Around the World

Travel Blog | Summer 2022 We caught up with some of our MaxWellers that have been busy representing MaxWell Biosystems around the world at lots of conferences such as ISSCR, FENS, CAN and lots more in between. After some rest we wanted to know all about their life while traveling and any hints and tips they might have to share.   Here is what they had to say!     That’s all for now! Let us know if you enjoyed…

MaxWell Monthly Must-Reads (February 2022)

Welcome to our MaxWell Monthly Must-Reads blog for February 2022. After last months edition about retinal organoids we have arrived at the second blog. We have picked another theme this month and selected five papers that we have read including publications using our MaxOne and MaxTwo system. In February, we have decided to focus on ALS research. The deliberating neurodegenerative disease that forced the “The Iron Horse” (-Lou Gehrig, one of the most decorated baseball legends) to retire is medically known…

MaxWell Monthly Must-Reads (January 2022)

Welcome to our MaxWell Monthly Must-Reads blog for 2022. A new year also means new publications to highlight and new topics to discover. This year as well, for our monthly must-reads, we will choose a theme per month and select five papers that we think are worth reading. Last year we covered a range of topics and in our first edition of 2022, we have decided to focus on Retinal Organoids. Human brain organoids assemble functionally integrated bilateral optic vesicles.…

Join the Conversation with Prof. Kenneth S. Kosik and Dr. Tal Sharf

Interview and Featured Publication Join the Conversation with Prof. Kenneth Kosik and Dr. Tal Sharf Recently, Dr. Tal Sharf, Prof. Kenneth S. Kosik and colleagues released a pre-print on their novel work entitled, “Human brain organoid networks”, currently under revision. Aiming to explore the physiological behavior of neuronal circuits within organoids, this work demonstrates that human brain organoids have self-organized neuronal assemblies of sufficient size, cellular orientation, and functional connectivity to co-activate and generate field potentials from their collective transmembrane…

HyVIS project

MaxWell Biosystems Becomes a Key Partner in a €3M EU-Financed Project “HyVIS”: Next Generation Prosthesis for Visual Restoration Hybrid Synapse for Vision (HyVIS) is a project funded by European Union Horizon 2020 FET-OPEN program 1, which aims to combine several technologies to achieve the groundbreaking restoration of synaptic light-mediated input in retinas with impaired photoreceptors, leading to treatments for diseases such as in retinitis pigmentosa and age-related macular degeneration (AMD). The key focus of HyVIS project is the development of an artificial light-sensitive prosthesis,…

MaxWell Monthly Must-Reads (September 2021)

It is time for a new edition of our monthly blog. In the August edition during the summer holidays, we highlighted the latest developments on CMOS-based MEA technology. For the September edition, we decided to focus on high-throughput screening. With these articles, we would like to prepare you for our upcoming webinar which will be a live demo of our multiwell MEA system, MaxTwo. You can still register for this live demonstration here. In this Monthly Must-Reads edition, we highlighted…

MaxWell Monthly Must-Reads (August 2021)

  It is time for a new edition of our monthly blog. In the August edition during the summer holidays, we highlight the latest developments on CMOS-based MEA technology. CMOS-based MEAs are used for detailed investigations of neuronal electrical activity at network and single-cell levels and to evaluate the effect of drugs on neuronal physiological activity. Therefore, for this Monthly Must-Reads edition, we decided to highlight the article written by Yuan X et al., in which switch-matrix (SM) and active-pixel-sensors…

Look back: the first In-vitro 2D and 3D Neuronal Networks Summit (MaxWell Biosystems User Meeting) 

On April 22nd and 23rd, we hosted the first In-vitro 2D and 3D neuronal Networks Summit (MaxWell Biosystems User Meeting) and were very excited about the tremendously successful outcome, with over 700 registrants from 49 countries!   First Day: Scientific Talks and Discussions Open for All The first day of the meeting was open to everybody. We had very interesting talks from seven invited speakers, who spoke about their work involving iPSC-derived neurons, brain organoids, and also high-density microelectrode array (HD-MEA)…
