Job­st Tech­nolo­gies got grant­ed the new project “Microflu­idic Lab-on-a-Bird trans­mit­ter for the hor­mone lev­el mon­i­tor­ing of free-mov­ing birds”.

Sub­ject of the project with €1.52 mil­lion fund­ing from Max Planck Soci­ety Munich, is an autonomous minia­tur­ized lab­o­ra­to­ry for col­lect­ing blood, mea­sur­ing the lev­el of stress hor­mones and send­ing the sig­nal from the free mov­ing bird to the “ground station”. 

Job­st Tech­nolo­gies GmbH will devel­op the auto­mat­ed blood- sam­pling- and microflu­idic- sys­tem enabling inte­gra­tion and oper­a­tion of the assay. Job­st Tech­nolo­gies’ microp­umps and flow rate sen­sor will also be used as enabling components.

Project part­ners are the Max Planck Insti­tute for Ornithol­o­gy and the Albert-Lud­wigs-Uni­ver­si­ty Freiburg.
