Andrea Cristaldi's Biography

Andrea Cristaldi, Senior R&D Specialist, CellDynamics isrl

Andrea joined the CellDynamics team as a Senior R&D Specialist in 2019 to conceive the technology, as well as raising awareness on the importance of the biophysical aspects to minimize the gap between in-vitro and in-human.

His previous work consisted of 10+ years of multidisciplinary academic research, performed between Italy and UK, which allowed him to produce science related to several chemistry and bioengineering fields, ranging from hybrid organic/inorganic materials and supramolecular chemistry, to in-silico drug design, micro- and milli-fluidics reactors and flow-synthesis of nano- and micro-particles.

-M.Sc. in “Chemistry” (Biomolecular oriented), Italy
-Second Level Master Degree in “Molecular Modelling and Drug Design in Oncology”, Italy
-Ph.D in Bioengineering/Chemistry - the University of Southampton (UK)

Introducing a unique approach for the biophysical characterization of 3D cell cultures, dedicated to Live and/or fixed 3D samples ranging from 50 µm sized cell clusters to larger spheroids or organoids up to 500 µm in diameter. The Flow-Based Gravimetric method allows measuring MASS DENSITY, WEIGHT and SIZE of 3D CELL CULTURE as well as performing BIOPHYSICAL-BASED SORTING in a LABEL-FREE manner, preserving samples' STERILITY and VIABILITY. An overview of the growing verified applications will demonstrate how it is now possible to start correlating biological events with biophysical properties, helping researchers gather crucial compactness- and cross-sectional-information, as well as support and improve their workflows. This includes quantitatively monitoring samples’ growth or maturation, standardization and QC prior to further downstream analysis, cell infiltration rates prediction, extracellular matrix production, co-culture growth monitoring, viability trends, drug activity effects and so on. Most importantly, the custom mass-density sorting of a target sub-population, with preserved samples’ sterility and viability, would become the key factor to improve standardization for researchers that want to proceed further with specific downstream analysis minimizing workflow-depending biases.
