Origami organs-on-chips to revolutionize pharmaceutical development and personalized medicine.
HOW IT WORKS
Uses origami to create organs on chips allows the conversion of easy-to-manufacture 2D patterns into complex 3D tissue architectures.
Our organ on chips offer the biological complexity to simulate human tissue-tissue interactions and physiological responses, together with a simple design that minimizes cost and maximizes robustness.
Each organ on chip is designed to perfectly fit standard microfluidic equipment. Combining multiple organs-on-chips easily produces entire systems-on-a-chip.
Spun off from a $2.3 million NSF and Air Force funded research project, co-founded by world class scientists and engineers from Northeastern University, Boston University, Harvard and MIT, ApreX Biotech develops a new generation of organs-on-chips systems to advance the development of pharmaceutical, chemical, food, cosmetic, and personalized medical products.
Organ-on-chips allow us to reduce the high costs of pharmaceutical development, the reliance on animal testing, and the development of personalized medical therapies.
Our organs-on-a-chip technology uses origami folding to convert easy-to-manufacture, 2D patterns into complex, 3D tissue architectures. Combining multiple organs through origami folding or Lego-inspired modular assembly also allows the production of systems-on-a-chip.
