Organs-on-a-chip: a path towards new treatment modalities

Organs-on-a-chip are tools that can potentially improve traditional drug development and the discovery of new treatments. That's because they help recreate the complex physiology of human organs and provide insights into how different systems interact with each other inside the human body. In this article, we'll see how this technology can lead to the discovery of new treatment modalities. And if you are interested in working with this tool, we will show you the minimum requirements your laboratory should have.

Organs on chips driving human research

Organ-on-a-chip (OOC) platforms mimic specific organ functions in the body providing a more realistic and accurate model for drug testing, [1]. This novel technology could better predict experimental drugs´ safety and efficacy before sending them to clinical trials, [2]. OOCs can be helpful in various applications in both clinical and basic research. We can cite their use as alternatives to animal testing, disease modeling, and the creation of new treatment modalities,
