Micronit has partnered with Fluigent to design a compact platform for any organ-specific experiment.
The Organ-on-a-Chip Platform is an easy setup and enables customisable and dynamic microfluidic flow conditions for tissue culturing, leading to a controlled environment. This opens up great opportunities for next-generation experiments of mimicking human organ functionality, microphysiology and morphology in vitro. Flow interfaces can be liquid-liquid or even gas-liquid for skin or lung tissues growth.
This already widely adapted technology requires fast innovation to let researchers of all disciplines excel in their field. A co-development of Micronit and Fluigent has resulted in a 4-dock OOC system with a pump and flow-rate control integrated that can be operated from a desk but also perfectly integrates in a incubator.
One complete system is modular and scaleable upto 16 flowcells and is a great tool for the lifescience or pharmaceutical researcher.
