Organ on a chip in microfluidic, great advantages and results

Microfluidic Application: Organ-on-a-Chip

Advantages of Organ-on-a-chip with microfluidics:

1.  3-D tissue structures look like actual organ physiology.
2.  They provide better simulation, which means it is more accurate.
3. For scientist, they can watch the chips in real time and in high resolution.
4. Early effectiveness and safety identification.

ORGAN ON A CHIP for the study of human phisiology

Microfluidics Application: Organ-on-a-Chip

Organ on a Chip is a type of artificial organ which simulates the activities, mechanics and physiological response of the entire organs and organ systems.

Moreover, it is a flexible polymer multi-channel 3-D microfluidic cell culture chip, and the union of lab -on-chips and cell biology has enabled the study of human physiology in an organic-specific context.

These types of chips are used to potentially accelerate drug discovery, reduce drug-development costs, to create a future of personalized medicine to treat a wide variety of diseases, such as cancer, pulmonary thrombosis and asthma.

Furthermore, these type of microchips are much more realistic models of the human body comparing with the flat layers of cells grown in petri dishes.
