Introduction of Dimethyl Sulphoxide (DMSO) in a Cell Suspension Using a Microfluidic Device

This research is aimed at developing a fully automated clinical-scale device that can be used for the introduction of DMSO in a cell suspension. The research work involves both computational and experimental modeling. The focus of the current work is to study buoyancy-driven flows and how that can be used to enhance diffusion of the system.
