Cell culture technology to improve research in human health and enhance drug discovery

We want to enable scientists to be more creative in their research by proving next dimension cell culture technology, which is easy to use and interactive, whilst closely mimicking body-like conditions and reducing animal testing. Current conventional culture plates & petri-dish approaches are static and self-limiting.  Cells are grown in isolation that simply do not represent the real nature of human cell-cell interactions.  Whereas, current  organ-on-a-chip technologies are difficult to use, have limited throughput and require significant investment

Our novel patented platform, CELLBLOKS®, is a multi-organ/cell type modular “plug and play” co-culture technology that emulates the organ microenvironments in a standard in-vitro setting. The technology offers researchers a novel way to better  predict human responses to new drugs, cosmetics, foods and viruses.

Our Technology

organ-on-a-chip alternative

Multiple cell and organ type co-culture

Configure combinations matrix to determine the interaction of each cell type being studied

CELLBLOKS® system allows you to set-up three-way combination possibilities which means that each cell type in a system can be tested individually, in sets of two and in a tri-culture all within one plate. In fact, CELLBLOKS®, is the only platform that enables researchers this three-way expansion. CELLBLOKS® matrix enables you to identify and select correct cell type combinations for further study at early stage, helping you save time and money.

Quick and simple analysis

Visualise and monitor in real-time 

The open top access allows you to monitor the experiments in real-time. Cells can be imaged live by a standard confocal microscopy without being disrupted. In addition, media can be collected for further analysis while the cells are interacting permitting long term effect to be studied.

Saves time

Easy to set up “Plug and Play” Block design also facilitates modification of experiments in real time.  Remove and substitute individual cell growth Blocks from the base chamber at any time without disturbing other cells in culture. This gives you more time to generate data that you need and spend less time in re-setting the experiments from the beginning. 

More Productive

Perform multiple experiments simultaneously in one platform 

Each platform has four individual channels to run separate cell-cell interaction experiments all at the same time within one device, enabling more productivity in less time.

Improved Reproducibility

Produce reliable data by maintaining similar environments across experiments

The CELLBLOKS® is designed in a standard SBS plate format to work with regular CO2 incubator and readout equipment. This enables you to minimize environmental differences across standard culture vessels and read-out equipment giving you more reliable and reproducible data.
