The company

Our technology

We have patent applications in novel cell culture devices that enable the growth of human cell culture in multi-dimensional forms in laboratory conditions, that better replicate the environment of living tissue.  Our new CELLBLOKS technology provides a unique customisable platform for multi-orgaphysiological experiments not provided by any other product. 

Current conventional "culture plates & peti-dishes" 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.
