Sensific's partners, supporters, sponsors:
Sensific is currently funded by the 'EXIST research transfer' programme by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) and Forschungstransfer“-Programms von BMWi und ESF.
EXIST research transfer aims at transferring technologically ambitious projects from research into commercialisation.
With ODIN, combined with a microfluidic system, the effects of antibiotics to bacteria's cell walls are investigated. These experiments aim at evaluating new screening processes.
Prof. Dr. Bernhard Eikmanns: „In our research, we conduct deformation cytometry analyses using ODIN and a microfluidic system specifically designed for microorganisms. This sensor allows very sensitive analyses of cell wall specific antibiotics' effect on particular bacteria.

Investigation of course and treatment of severe physical traumas, based on mechanical markers at the cellular level with the ODIN
The Clinical & Biological Psychology Department (project partner: Dr. Alexander Karabatsiakis, head of group: Prof. Dr. Iris-Tatjana Kolassa) uses ODIN for investigating the effects of chronic and traumatic stressors on the immune system and for characterising the effects of psychotherapeutic treatment on a immunocellular level.
