MaxWell Monthly Must-Reads (June 2018)

June brings us to the fourth edition of our blog series, the MaxWell Monthly Must-Reads. This month’s selection of articles will focus on induced pluripotent stem cells or iPSCs. This technology, developed by researchers at Kyoto University lead by Dr. Shinya Yamanaka, allows adult cells to be genetically ‘reprogrammed’ to a stem cell-like state. Thus, it is possible to derive specific cell types from iPSCs, such as neurons and cardiomyocytes, providing a means to study human cells in-vitro. Increasingly, iPSCs are being used…

MaxWell Monthly Must-Reads (May 2018)

Time goes by fast, and it is already time for the May edition of MaxWell Monthly Must-Reads. This month’s blog series will focus on a well-studied region of the brain, the Hippocampus. We picked this topic for this month as the hippocampus is an interesting model system for studying mechanisms involved in memory storage. MaxOne provides a high-resolution recording and stimulation platform for investigating single cells and networks in hippocampal slices and cell cultures. This month’s MMM includes a methods article utilizing our…

MaxWell Monthly Must-Reads (April 2018)

After last month’s successful launch , it is finally time for the April edition of MaxWell Monthly Must-Reads. This month’s blog series will focus on Neuronal Excitability. The topic plays a key role in understanding how neurons encode and transmit information. At MaxWell Biosystems, we aim to develop assays for characterizing neuronal excitability, both in healthy and disease conditions. For this month’s MMM, we include recent studies on different factors that regulate excitability of neurons, such as ion channels, calcium signaling, and…

MaxWell Travels: Tel Aviv, Israel

Recently we participated in our first conference in 2018. Our CEO, Urs Frey, attended the Neural Interfaces 2018 meeting at the Bar Ilan University in Tel Aviv, Israel. As a sponsor, we had the opportunity to display our technology at an exhibition booth. Furthermore, Urs presented our technology during a presentation entitled “CMOS-MEAs for characterizing neuronal dynamics in vitro at high spatiotemporal resolution”.  The Conference The Neural Interfaces 2018 conference was a three day-meeting held at the Bar Ilan University. This year…
