Peter Ertl's Biography

Peter Ertl, Professor of Lab-on-a-Chip Systems, Vienna University of Technology

Prof. Ertl holds an engineering degree in Biotechnology (University of Life Sciences, BOKU, Austria), a PhD in Chemistry (University of Waterloo, UW, Canada) and received his postdoctoral training as a biophysicist at University of California at Berkeley (UCB, US). Following a position as Director of Product Development at a UW spin-off venture (Canada), Dr. Ertl joint the Biosensor Technology unit at the Austrian Institute of Technology (AIT). During his tenure at the AIT, Dr. Ertl was also granted a Fulbright Visiting Scholarship at UC Berkeley (2012) and conducted visiting scientist positions at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (2013), the Medical Center of the University of California at San Francisco (2014). In 2016 he was appointed Professor of Lab-on-a-Chip Systems for Bioscience Technologies at the Vienna University of Technology (TUW), where his research focuses on the development of advanced in vitro diagnostic microsystems and organ-on-a-chip systems. Additionally, Dr Ertl held a visiting research appointment at Imperial College London (UK) in 2019 , is speaker of the Austrian Microfluidics Initiative (AMI) and editor of the open access journal Organs-on-a-Chip (Elsevier).

Living cell cultures are widely using in basic to applied research and industrial production. To meet the growing demand for living human cells in biological and medical research as well as pharmaceutical development, cell lines are either ordered and shipped from well-known cell banks around the world or sent between different laboratories. The cryogenic and live transport of cells is not only problematic since high cell viability must be guaranteed, they are also important cost factor considering the prize dry ice and portable incubators. To overcome these limitations, we have developed a microfluidic multi-spheroid array that utilizes the resilience of 3D cell aggregates to cope with physical, chemical and environmental influences such pH changes, mechanical stress and ambient temperatures. In this presentation biochip design, fabrication and initial testing results will be presented.
