FEATURES & BENEFITS
Elveflow’s Organ-On-Chip Pack setup uses one flow controller to flow a medium through a chip containing the organ cells. The software allows a very accurate and stable control of the flow rate over defined periods of time.
There are several chip designs available for organ-on-chips experiments, depending on the type of organs that scientists would like to mimic and the experimental protocols. Elveflow is working closely with several organ-on-chips providers in order to supply the most suitable chip for your science.
Organs-on-chips applications do not only have several advantages such as miniaturization, integration and low consumption, but also they allow the researcher to accurately control the multiple parameters of a system such as chemical concentration gradient, fluid shear stress, cell patterning, tissue-tissue interface, organ-organ interaction and so on. They aim at mimicking the complex structure, microenvironment and physiological function of human organs.
These applications hold the promise of having a significant impact on improving the predictability of drug screening models and personalized medicine. Organ-on-a-chip technology supports these research areas by providing an environment that can mimic the human physiology and morphology in vivo better than traditional cell culturing methods. Scalable organ-on-a-chip production is made possible by combining the technologies originating from both the semiconductor and molecular biology industries.
The Organ-On-Chip Pack can be used with any commercial chip or self-made chip.
MesoBioTech is a company offering chips dedicated to cell culture and tissue culture.
Illustration of a microchip allowing reversible patch integration.
These chips were designed for reversible integration of various types of patches, including microfilters, membranes, nanofibers, tissue constructs, etc. They are made of two plastic plates, each having an elastomeric thin film, four embedded magnets, and pre-patterned chambers and micro-channels. When a patch is placed between the two plates, the force between the four pairs of magnets ensures auto-assembling and the standard Luer connectors on the upper plate allow for easy interface between the inner and outer world
