Brain Tissue Kept Alive For Weeks On Artificial Membrane

A new system for keeping tissue viable for long-term study once transferred from an animal to a culture medium has been developed by researchers at the RIKEN Center for Biosystems Dynamics Research in Japan. The new system[1] uses a microfluidic device that can keep tissue from both drying out and from drowning in fluid. A […]

Retina On A Chip A Powerful Tool For Studying Eye Disease

A retina-on-a-chip, which blends living human cells with an artificial tissue-like system, has been developed by scientists in Germany. The cutting-edge tool may provide a useful alternative to existing models for studying eye disease and allow scientists to test the effects of drugs on the retina more efficiently. Many diseases that cause blindness – such […]

First Lab-grown Skin Tissue With Hair Follicles Cultured

The first lab-grown skin tissue complete with hair follicles has been cultured by researchers at Indiana University School of Medicine. The skin model, developed using stem cells from mice, more closely resembles natural hair than existing models and may prove useful for testing drugs, understanding hair growth, and reducing the practice of animal testing. Although […]
