MIMETAS invites you to their event

Easy and Reliable In Vitro BBB-on-a-Chip by Nienke Wevers

About this event

The webinar is pre-recorded. You can sign-up at any time, even if the system says that the webinar is already running. You will be able to watch it from the beginning.

Creating an in vitro model of the BBB does not have to be complicated.

In this webinar, you will learn how you can easily create a reliable and physiologically relevant model of the BBB in Mimetas OrganoPlate®. This system is successfully used by the top 10 big pharma and hundreds of academic researchers worldwide.

What you will learn

➡️ Limitations of current in vitro BBB systems and how to overcome

➡️ How to build a leak-tight 3D in vitro BBB model thanks to flow and co-cultures

➡️ How to easily asses BBB permeability, integrity, and expression of transporters on the model

➡️ How to obtain consistent and reproducible data

What others have said about the OrganoPlate®

“With the OrganoPlate by Mimetas, we developed a 3D brain-on-a-chip model that made easy to do high-throughput and high-content imaging to evaluate the acute toxicity of neurotoxins. OrganoPlate allowed the study of membrane-free vascular formation in a dynamic environment and further provided reliable and repeatable experiments with strong imaging capability.” — Dr. Yeoheung Yun, Associate Professor at North Carolina A&T State University

“Often you have to compromise: it’s either the throughput or it’s the complexity of the model. Getting both in the same platform…no other platforms can do that!” – Senior Scientist from top pharma
