The foundation of our science & technology

A Window into Human Biology

An Organ-Chip is a micro-engineered system that provides human cells with the dynamic environment they need to behave like they do in the body. The chip’s tiny channels recreate the flow of blood and air. Its flexibility allows cells to experience mechanical forces similar to those of breathing, or peristalsis. And the chip’s transparency makes it easy for researchers to witness living cells inside the chip.

Tissue-to-Tissue Interfaces Researchers can study cellular communication between cell types
Biochemical Surroundings In vivo-like biochemical surroundings increases human-relevant response
Immune Cells & Blood Components Emulation of blood flow allows researchers to study immune cells
Extracellular Matrix Provides the scaffolding found in the body's cellular microenvironment
Mechanical Forces Recreation of breathing or peristalsis influences cellular behavior

Research + Data

Scientific research is fundamental to everything we do. Over the years, our scientists and engineers have published many papers in high-impact journals, starting with a paper co-authored by our Scientific Founder Prof. Don Ingber, which appeared in the journal Science in 2010.

Selections of research that use our Organs-on-Chips technology are found below.

Human Emulation System

We have democratized Organs-on-Chips technology into an easy-to-use, lab-ready system, which is comprised of Organ-Chips, hardware, and software apps.
