Organ-on-a-Chip Online Workshop

Join our monthly Organ-on-a-Chip Workshops online

Laboratory workshop for researchers

2-day Organ-on-a-Chip workshop

In our online workshop, you will learn about 3D cell culture and how to use the OrganoPlate®. 

The workshop involves both theory and practice, including lab sessions - virtually - guided by our scientists. The workshop sessions are spread over 5 half-days and covers interactive lectures and sessions in your own lab, where our scientist guides you virtually on how to use the OrganoPlate®. By joining the workshop, you will learn how to design and carry out Organ-on-a-Chip experiments using the OrganoPlate®, and introduce the technology in your lab.

Prior to the workshop you will receive OrganoPlates and key reagents to work with during the lab sessions. On top of this you will receive two extra OrganoPlates or an OrganoFlow S allowing you to start with your experiments right away.  A total value of €1,560.
