Organ-Chip Consumables

A range of Organ-Chip designs enabling a variety of biological applications

Emulate offers two types of Organ-Chip consumables for modeling a diverse range of human biology. Our flagship Chip-S1 Stretchable Chip enables users to build robust organ models with a tissue-vascular interface and has been validated for a variety of organ models and applications. The Chip-A1 Accessible Chip maintains the ability to model the tissue-vascular interface while providing expanded capabilities to effectively model complex 3D tissue with direct compound dosing capabilities. Each chip has been specifically designed for your novel research needs.

Enhanced modeling capabilities

Chip-A1 Accessible Chip

Chip-A1 allows researchers to model complex 3D tissues by incorporating gels up to 3 mm thick within the chip’s accessible culture chamber, integrating stroma into the epithelial layer, and applying organ-specific biomechanical forces. With these features, Chip-A1 offers improved in vitro modeling capabilities for research areas such as cancer and cosmetics, which require enhanced 3D models and more direct compound dosing options.
