An organ-on-a-chip (OOC) in vitro device such as a microfluidic chip with microfluidic flow channels populated by living cells provides an accurate non-animal based high-throughput alternative to traditional lab animal tests. PimBio organ-on-a-chip device allows a user to perform cell-based assays under in vivo like 3D conditions and is especially suited to the in vitro simulation of physiological cellular microenvironment involving interstitial flow biomechanical stimulation. Our organ-on-a-chip platform with standard microscope slide dimensions is a gravity driven microfluidic system compatible with any laboratory pumping system.
PimBio B.V. is focused on development and manufacturing of microfluidic devices for bioengineering physiologically relevant in vitro models for different applications. PimBio supports the 3Rs, the guiding principles of reduction, refinement and replacement of animal experiments.
