5 Unique Ways Organ-on-a-Chip Technology Is Being Applied in Biomedical R&D
Organ-on-a-chip (OOAC) technology is a promising tool with numerous applications across biomedical fields. Also known as microphysiological systems, tissue chips or organs-on-chips, these devices offer a way to replicate key aspects of human physiology, and therefore answer specific questions about organ function and disease pathophysiology.
