SELECTBIO Organ-on-a-Chip & Tissue-on-a-Chip Europe 2020 Rotterdam
Microfluidics and Lab-on-a-Chip technologies
September 9-10, Rotterdam, The Netherlands
SelectBIO Organ-on-a-Chip & Tissue-on-a-Chip Europe 2020 focuses on an important and expanding field wherein cells are being assembled using Microfluidics and Lab-on-a-Chip technologies in a functionally-relevant manner.
These clusters of "assembled cells" have functional significance and can mimic in vivo organ structure. Liver cells assembled on-board chips in a physiologically-relevant architecture using microfluidics can, for instance, be utilized for toxicity screening and the ability to assemble organ fragments ex vivo can provide an exquisite means to reconstruct biological processes (both physiological and pathological) "in a dish" or "on a chip." A number of chips such Lung-on-a-Chip, Brain-on-a-Chip, Gut-on-a-Chip, Marrow-on-a-Chip, Bone-on-a-Chip, Nerve-on-a-Chip amongst others have been built and will be presented and explored at this conference. The conference will also focus on "disease-on-a-chip", cancer-on-a-chip, and immune system-on-a-chip.
Stay tuned for more info.
