Prenatal diagnosis to determine the outcome of pregnancies and detect conditions that may affect future pregnancies has risen as a big issue in the broad public. Analysis of fetal genetic material extracted from maternal blood is a smart alternative to invasive prenatal testing.
The immune system is a striking example of an integrated information system, engaged in coordinated host-protective activities. Organs-on-chip approach (OOC) models allow the direct simultaneous observation of hundreds of different cells, moving, interacting and responding to signals coming from the microenvironment nearby, that give access to a number of parameters describing the system that must be properly measured and elaborated.READ MORE
