Organs and Tissues on Chips (Keystone D1 2018)

Apr 08 - 12, 2018

Transforming Drug Discovery and Development with Body-on-a-Chip Technology

Join InSphero Head of Technology Platforms Dr. Olivier Frey at the Keystone D1 symposium to learn about ongoing efforts and various applications of tissues-on-chips technology.  Dr. Frey will be available during the meeting 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

InSphero Talks Integrated Organs-on-Chips

During the Monday session on Integrated Organs-on-Chips, Dr. Frey will give a short talk on automating multi-tissue microphysiological systems based on 3D microtissues.  He will preview Akura Flow™, our new microphysiological system, designed for organs-on-chips applications such as low clearance assays and metabolic disease modeling using multiple types of 3D InSight™ microtissues, and discuss how it can be applied 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
