Igniting a New Era in Health
Emulate Closes $82M Series E Financing
Emulate develops and manufactures next-generation in vitro biological models that enable researchers to replicate and study human biology and disease, helping them understand and predict drug response with greater precision and detail than possible with conventional cell culture or animal-based methods.
Organ-on-a-Chip technology by Emulate provides flexible microenvironments containing tiny hollow channels lined with living cells and tissues that can be subjected to mechanical forces that mirror breathing or digestion in the human body. The technology is used by leading academic researchers, government entities, and many of the largest pharmaceutical companies to better understand the biology of human disease.
