Press Release (ePRNews.com) - TORONTO - Jun 04, 2018 - Organ-on-a-Chip studies are being hailed as the key to faster, more accurate drug development and precision medicine. Join industry experts from CN Bio Dr. Emma Sceats, CEO and Dr. David Hughes, CTO, for a walkthrough of the most advanced commercial Organ-on-a-Chip devices.
Organ-on-Chip systems – including academic prototypes and more recently commercial devices – are installed in industry and academic labs worldwide. They are being evaluated by the FDA for use in drug development and regulatory studies.
In March 2018, Nature Scientific Reports covered the final milestone of a $26M DARPA program which successfully connected engineered tissues from 10 organs, accurately replicating human organ interactions for weeks at a time and allowing researchers to measure the effects of drugs on different parts of the body.
And in a February 2018 article in Nature Communications, scientists at Imperial College London demonstrated how organ-on-a-chip technology has been used to study viral infections, in this case Hepatitis B infection of a liver-on-a-chip. This approach aims to provide a better understanding of disease and improve the development of new treatments.
Organ-on-Chip technology has also featured recently in BioCentury, The Economist, TechCrunch, the BBC and numerous specialist scientific and technology media outlets.
Join this live webinar on Tuesday, June 12, 2018 at 11 a.m. EDT (4 p.m. BST/UK) to discover:
· How to run Organ-on-a-Chip studies in your own lab to enhance research
· Walkthrough of an Organ-on-Chip workflow: lab set-up, seeding and culturing cells, dosing, sampling and analysis
· Practical advice and resources to support successful Organ-on-a-Chip studies: equipment, cell selection, protocols, assays and data analysis
