Applying Nanofluidics to Enhance Biomanufacturing

AZoNano interviews Biomanfacturing@MIT-CBI collaborator Dr. Georgios ‘Yorgos’ Katsikis, a researcher in the laboratory of Scott Manalis, the Andrew (1956) and Erna Viterbi Professor, Professor of Biological and Mechanical Engineering, about his involvement in new research that employs nanofluidics to assess the DNA content of viral vectors, a critical component of gene therapy. Integrating this approach into a biomanufacturing workflow could help enhance clinical safety and therapeutic efficiency via quality control.

You can read Dr. Katsikis’ work, ‘Weighing the DNA Content of Adeno-Associated Virus Vectors with Zeptogram Precision Using Nanomechanical Resonators’published in Nano Letters HERE.
