MaxWell Monthly Must-Reads (May 2020)

We hope you enjoyed the last Monthly Must-Reads about Neurons and Viruses. In the other months this year we mainly highlighted scientific topics such as Axons in January, Retina in February and last month we highlighted Organoids. This month we want to highlight a topic that complements the above four editions perfection! During times of COVID-19 and the significant amount of home-office hours, you might have more time to analyse all of your data. Therefore we have decided to pick five articles. that allow…

MxW Monthly Must-Reads (01.2019)

Welcome to the first MxW Monthly Must-Reads (MMM) of 2019! This month’s selection of articles focuses on retina research. The retina, an extension of the brain and the first stage of visual input processing, extracts information about various features of visual stimuli, including size, contrast, colour, orientation and motion direction. With a diversity of neural subtypes both on the levels of local processing and downstream output via retinal ganglion cells, the retina is an amazing model for studying functional sub-circuits…

MaxWell Biosystems at European Retina Meeting 2017

From October 5th to the 7th, MaxWell Biosystems hosted a booth at the European Retina Meeting, in Paris, France. The conference attracted retina experts, researchers, and students. Paris was a great host, and MaxWell Biosystems even had the opportunity to attend a gala dinner in the city. MaxWell Biosystems would like to thank the organizers for a job well done!   Conference attendees loved the levitating MaxOne chip on display. Additionally, ERM 2017 gave MaxWell Biosystems the opportunity to debut the brand new Tissue Holder, specifically made for retinal applications.   We’re excited to…

MaxWell Biosystems technology in “The Secrets of Vision”

MaxWell Biosystems was excited to see Dr. Michele Fiscella, VP Scientific Affairs, featured in “The Secrets of Vision”. Michele discussed the state of vision disease research. The video is part of a film series produced by Systems X, the Swiss Initiative in Systems Biology. “The Secrets of Vision” tracks the increasing importance of research on vision-related diseases — with the end goal of developing effective drugs and treatment. In the feature, Michele explains how high-density microelectrode array systems, such as MaxOne, can accelerate this type of retinal cell research. He comments, “High…
