DECHEMA 3D Cell Culture 2018 - Insphero

DECHEMA 3D Cell Culture 2018


Jun 05 - 07, 2018

Discover the Next Generation of Body-on-a-Chip Technology

Meet InSphero Head of Technology Platforms Dr. Olivier Frey at DECHEMA 3D Cell Culture to learn about ongoing efforts and various applications of tissues-on-chips technology.  Dr. Frey will be available during the conference to discuss how InSphero can help you:

  • Use the latest technology to test drugs on organ models to better understand how they may affect the body as a whole
  • Address common challenges of emerging microfluidic devices with the InSphero Akura™ Flow microphysiological system.
  • Become an application development partner and help shape the future of Organs- and Tissues-on-Chips in drug discovery and development

Schedule a Meeting

Akura Flow™ for Integrated Organs-on-Chips

Together with our collaborators at Roche and ETH Zürich, we will present how Akura™ Flow, our new microphysiological system, designed for organs-on-chips applications  using multiple types of 3D InSight™ microtissues, and can be used to:

  • Minimize cell, medium and compound use in a miniaturized 10-microtissue configuration
  • Leverage maximum physiological complexity while minimizing operational complexity
  • Compare numerous conditions in parallel on one plate in a scalable, automation-compatible platform
  • Employ a diverse array of experimental endpoints
