Encapsulate – Automated Tumor-On-A-Chip
Organ-on-a-chip (OOC) technology spans biomedical engineering, lab-on-chip, and cell biology to create a type of artificial organ. These multi-channel 3D microfluidic cell culture chips mimic the activities, mechanics, and physiological response of organ systems. Startups are recognizing the potential of biochip-based analysis, in particular for decision making, while treating numerous diseases.
The US-based startup Encapsulate provides its eponymous biochip technology to grow patient-derived cancer cells ex-vivo and later screen them against chemotherapeutic drugs. The patient’s tumor cells are broken into microtumors for testing the efficacy of hundreds of different drugs and treatments. This empowers doctors to choose the most effective and personalized treatment for each patient.
