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

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