Regenerative medicine technology: on-a-chip applications for by Sean V. Murphy, Anthony Atala

By Sean V. Murphy, Anthony Atala

Miniaturization within the fields of chemistry and molecular biology has ended in the "lab-on-a-chip." Such structures are micro-fabricated units able to dealing with super small fluid volumes facilitating the scaling of unmarried or a number of lab tactics all the way down to a microchip-sized layout. The convergence of lab-on-a-chip expertise with the sector of phone biology facilitated the improvement of "organ-on-a-chip" platforms. Such structures simulate the functionality of tissues and organs, having the capability to circumvent a few telephone and animal trying out equipment. those applied sciences have generated excessive curiosity as purposes for sickness modeling and drug discovery.

This booklet, edited via Drs. Sean Murphy and Anthony Atala, offers a complete insurance of the applied sciences which were used to improve organ-on-a-chip structures. recognized leaders hide the fundamentals to the main appropriate and novel issues within the box, together with micro-fabrication, 3D bio-printing, 3D telephone tradition innovations, biosensor layout and microelectronics, micro-fluidics, facts assortment, and predictive research. The e-book describes particular tissue forms amenable for affliction modeling and drug discovery purposes. Lung, liver, center, epidermis and kidney "on-a-chip" applied sciences are integrated in addition to a growth record on designing a whole "body-on-a-chip" procedure. also, the publication covers purposes of varied structures for modeling tissue-specific cancers, metastasis, and tumor microenvironments; and gives an summary of present and strength functions of those structures to ailment modeling, toxicity checking out, and individualized medicine.
