paraQchip - Parahydrogen-Induced Hyperpolarisation On A Chip For Microfluidic Perfusion Culture


Lead researcher

Professor Marcel Utz

Professor of Magnetic Resonance

Research interests

  • Marcel’s main focus lies on the integration of microfluidic lab-on-a-chip technology with NMR spectroscopy and imaging. His group believe that there is great potential for NMR in the context of LoC devices, due to its versatility, resolution, and non-invasive nature, which make it an ideal tool to study complex living systems.
  • In addition, they are also interested in the behaviour of complex materials. Recent examples of this include polyelectrolyte hydrogels and brick-and-mortar type micro-composites.
