Cell Culturing and Organ-on-a-Chip technology

Cell culture involves growing cells under controlled conditions, usually outside their natural environment. This technique is fundamental in disciplines such as tissue engineering, regenerative medicine and pharmacology, allowing researchers to study cell behavior, test drug efficacy and develop new therapeutic approaches, such as Personalized Medicines and High-Throughput Screening. 

With the advent of Organ-on-a-Chip (OoC) technology, cell culture has advanced significantly. OoC systems integrate microfluidics and cell biology to replicate human organ functions on a miniature scale, yielding more accurate in vitro models. This innovation improves the study of cellular processes, drug testing and the development of personalized medicines.

By integrating OoC technology into cell culture methods, researchers can achieve more reliable results, enabling significant advances in biomedical research and healthcare.

Your development partner for Cell Culturing platfoms

Micronit is an experienced development and manufacturing partner for microfluidic components and  consumables. We are open to partners that wish to develop a new product, tailored to their specific wishes and needs. We run multiple projects at different maturity stages from development to manufacturing. Our customers, varying from ambitious start-ups to one of the key global players in the next gen sequencing market, rely on our track record of years of supplying our optical grade, high-quality flow cells and other microfluidic products. We also support leading academics in providing the tools for groundbreaking research.

Simplify Replication In Vivo Conditions

Accurately mimicking the physiological conditions of human organs is highly complex, involving precise control over flow conditions, nutrient supply, and waste removal. Micronit developed an advanced OoC platform, providing you highly accurate flow control and non-permeable, rigid materials that ensure stable oxygen levels and prevent absorption of active ingredients. This precision helps create a more realistic in vivo-like environment, enhancing cell growth and differentiation.

Benefits of Organ-on-chip Technology

  • Improved Drug Testing: OOC platforms can predict human responses to drugs more accurately than traditional cell cultures or animal models, reducing the risk of adverse effects and improving the success rate of clinical trials.
  • Disease Modeling: These platforms enable the study of disease mechanisms in a controlled environment, facilitating the development of new treatments for complex diseases such as cancer and neurodegenerative disorders.
  • Ethical Research: By reducing the reliance on animal testing, OOC platforms offer a more ethical and sustainable approach to biomedical research.
