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…

Retina study utilizing HD-MEAs (MaxOne) selected as “Best of Neuron”

The paper by K. Yonehara*, M. Fiscella*, A. Drinnenberg*, et al. entitled “Congenital Nystagmus Gene FRMD7 is necessary for establishing a neuronal circuit asymmetry for direction selectivity” was chosen for the “Best of Neuron” selection 2015-2016. “Best of Neuron“ includes ground-breaking neuroscience research published in Neuron and is a collection of editors’ and readers’ favorites. MaxWell Biosystems HD-MEA core technology was used in this study, to characterize the disease phenotype discovered in the FRMD7 mutant retina. Mutation in the FRMD7 gene is linked to the…
