Driving the Industry Applications of Tissue-on-Chip Systems


  • Sharing industry progress behind producing robust, reliable and replicable
    results in microfluidic system
    Standardizing tissue composition, and physiologic and pharmacologic responses to well-known agents to assess physiological relevancy
  • Evaluating the steps to increase wide-spread adoption and commercialization of organ-on-chip systems
  • Balancing high-throughput requirements with physiological  relevancy
  • Importance of 3D tissue models in increasing translatability and predictiveness of efficacy and toxicity studies of potential drug candidates
  • Actionable insights & lessons learnt from industry representatives.

Multi-Organ-on-Chip Systems: Benefits, Challenges, Opportunities


  • Current limitations of 3D tissue models and navigating the challenges around developing multi-tissue and multi-organ systems
  • Interconnecting circulating mediums in multi-tissue devices
  • Assessing physiological relevance in multi-organ systems
  • Observing complex responses, such as how the response of one tissue type impacts another
  • Incorporating immune system response into 3D tissue models
  • When to use multi-organ-on-chip systems over less complex 3D tissue models in the continuum of testing
  • Development, validation and commercialisation of multi-organon-chip systems
