Animal Experimentation: Working Towards a Paradigm Change

Workshop und deutsche Buchpremiere am 14. und 15. Juni in München Tierversuche zählen zu den umstrittensten Praktiken, in denen wir Tiere nutzen, insbesondere weil den Tieren hier absichtlich Schmerzen, Leiden und Schäden zugefügt werden – mit der Begründung eines möglichen Erkenntnisgewinns für den Menschen. An dieser Rechtfertigung für die Unerlässlichkeit von Tierversuchen hat sich wenig […]

Cells and tissue as prediction model at EMBC 2019

The combination of classical engineering disciplines and knowledge from cell biology allows the construction of physiologically relevant models to predict processes in the human body in-vitro. In the symposium different aspects of tissue-on-a-chip systems are presented. These include a biopsy-based approach to develop personalized therapies for cancer patients. A bone-on-a-chip that allows the investigation of […]

Fourier Analysis in Microphysiometry

A short introduction to microphysiometry (the monitoring of energy metabolism of living cells) is given. An experiment with the mouse fibroblast cell line L929 is described, employing the intelligent mobile lab for in vitro diagnostics. The experimental conditions are described with a focus on the medium exchange and rest intervals which result in a metabolism […]

The Lush Prize Conference 2018

Meet us at The Lush Prize Conference 2018. Welcome to Berlin for The Lush Prize Conference 2018: Is there an end in sight for animal testing? Can Organ-on-a-Chip replace animal use in safety testing with advanced human focused approaches?
