The liver is a key organ in the study of drug metabolism and toxicology. Understanding the way in which a drug is processed by the liver and discovering any adverse effects is a crucial part of drug development. Liver disease is also a major concern, with approximately 850 million people worldwide living with chronic liver diseases.
Liver Cell Model
CN Bio’s multi-well PhysioMimix™ Liver-on-a-Chip (MPS-LC12) consumable plates are ideally suited to primary liver cell culture and co-culture assays. They enable researchers to identify liver toxicity markers, model liver disease and study drug metabolism.
Our Microphysiological System (MPS) uses scaffolds to create microtissues that are continuously perfused to provide nutrients, oxygen and mechanical stimuli. This enables the extended maintenance (> four weeks) of highly metabolically active, phenotypically intact three-dimensional (3D) primary human hepatocyte cells from which highly reproducible results can be generated.
Liver MPS vs Other models
PhysioMimix™ Liver-on-a-Chip (MPS-LC12) consumable plates are designed to provide optimal perfused 3D cell culture conditions for:
- Primary hepatocytes and non-parenchymal cells (human, or preclinical animal species)
- Stem cell-derived hepatocytes
- Precision-cut tissue slices
- Organoids and spheroids
- Immortalised cell lines
Multi-organ Liver Models
CN Bio’s PhysioMimix Multi-Organ MPS and multi-well MPS-TL6 consumable plates enable our best-in-class liver-on-a-chip model to be interconnected to another organ in the body, such as gut, or lung Barrier Models to study reactive metabolite driven toxicity, whilst simultaneously evaluating drug absorption and metabolism.
