Anwendungen & Produkte Mikrophysiologische Systeme


New regulations and novel substance classes made the evaluation and authorisation process of drugs, cosmetics and chemicals not only more complicated but laborious. A microphysiological system was developed as a new foundation for substance discovery and risk assessment. Its microfluidic setup allows the combination of any 3D organ model and their interaction.
