Chip pioneer Manz publishes on OrganoPlates
In a paper in Biomicrofluidics entitled "On-chip three-dimensional cell culture in phaseguides improves hepatocyte functions in vitro", Mi Jang et al describe the use of OrganoPlates for 3D hepatocyte culture. The authors conclude that "the OrganoPlate seems to be a very useful alternative for the cultivation of hepatocytes, as their behavior was strongly improved over 2D and static 3D cultures and the results were largely comparable and partly superior to the previous reports on biochip-cultured hepatocytes. As for the low technical needs, this platform has the appearance of being highly applicable for further studies of hepatocytes’ responses to external stimuli."
