An Introduction to Organ-on-a-Chip Technology
Preclinical animal and in vitro models can be extremely useful tools in the development and safety testing of novel drugs. However, such models sometimes struggle to accurately mimic human tissue biology; consequently, 90% of preclinically successful drugs fail in human trials.
Organ-on-a-Chip technology offers a more accurate, reproducible solution by creating a human-relevant environment for drug testing applications from early discovery through to preclinical trials.
This eBook provides an introduction to Organ-on-a-Chip technology and highlights the latest solutions available to support drug discovery.
