Aenitis' acoustophoretic approach enable to simplify Bioprocess in cell therapies, aiming:

- yield increase,
- more secure processing,
- lower cost processing ,
- and higher cell quality.

Today, for example, Aenitis' approach permits on platelet processing to gain, compared to current standards, 15% on platelets recovery, 20% on the processing timing, reduce handling contain and reduce costs. Platelets are also not activated by acoustic handling that permit optimal quality to be maintained.

Jean-Luc worked for 7 years in the Aerodynamics research unit of the Research and Innovation Department of PSA Peugeot-Citroën as the head of a research and innovation project. He joined the CNRS in October 2005 where he developed research programs in the field of flow control, external aerodynamic instabilities, and transition to turbulence and micro-flows. Jean-Luc demonstrated the potential of the acoustic manipulation of particles for metrological applications (micro-PIV). Jean-Luc also discovered that acoustic streaming in micro-channels can be used beyond the conventional resonance condition in order to create a "sound tweezer" that enables the fine handling of species in suspension.

INSERM research director at the Langevin Institute ESPCI Paris, Mickaël developed with his team new therapy techniques and medical imaging, including, for example, non-invasive treatment of brain disorders with transcranial focused ultrasound (Equipex Ultrabrain) or a new brain imaging technique: the"fUltrasound" (functional brain Ultrasound). This imaging technique based on the study of blood flow can detect changes in cerebral activity. His works led to the creation of a French company, Supersonic Imagine, which markets a scanner that can distinguish the tissue elasticity and variations and identify cancerous tumors. He also founded in 2015 Cardiawave that develops a revolutionary non-invasive medical device to treat a heart condition calledaortic stenosis. Mickaël Tanter is a member of the scientific council of the Ile de France, deputy director of the Langevin Institute, winner of Equipex with his team.
