Organs on chips to replace animal testing

Emulate uses organs-on-chips to accurately test drugs on individual, human organs. In the future, these could be your cells on a chip, tested with treatment after treatment until the right one sticks, offering personalised medicine tailored exactly to your genetic makeup. The micro-devices work by recreating the tissue interfaces of human organs inside a transparent polymer “chip”, so the behaviours of bacteria, drugs and human white blood cells can be easily monitored through a microscope.
