Nortis' unique microfluidic chips grow microscopic organ models by seeding cells into tubular voids within extracellular matrix gels. Three dimensional tubules are fully surrounded by matrix allowing cells to self-organize into in-vivo like structures. The chip design offers the flexibility to generate a variety of tissue architectures based on cell types and matrix materials selected. Multiple chip designs are available allowing to streamline throughput or create more complex micro-physiological environments. Each chip supports a wide range of readouts including: fluorescent microscopy, effluent analysis, permeability studies, histology, and gene expression analysis.
