»Development of Organ-on-a-Chip Systems for the Optimization of Therapy Strategies for Cancer Patients« | Dr. Katja Uhlig | Lecture | October 28, 2020

The organ-on-a-chip system combines controlled, physiological 3D cell culture with real-time measurement of cell respiration and pH change; both serve as indicators of cell metabolism. The automated setup allows short and long-term studies of cell tissues under continuous perfusion and defined addition of test substances for up to one month. With this system, e.g. in-vitro studies for the evaluation of liver toxicity of chemical substances are performed.
