Microfluidics is beneficial for saving reagent consumption. Tissue or organ-on-a-chip is a type of application of microfluidics technology for mimicking organism tissue sections for mainly pharmaceutical testing applications. Tissue-on-chips are engineered microsystems to be worked as organs like skin, liver or brain. Metabolism, physical structure and functional modeling is the primary issue.

 Ultimately, this new technology aims to make pharmaceutical development, especially toxicology and efficacy screening, more reliable, because the tissue chips may provide researchers with insights into predicting more accurately how effective potential pharmaceuticals would be in humans.

 It is also very promising for 3Rs (Reduction, Refinement, Replacement) for animal use in research experiments.

 It is not only for representing human organ/tissues during the pharmaceutical development process but also various areas of research given below

--- Life Sciences: molecular biology analysis of tissues slices, the 3d culture of primary tissues, cell invasion and motility analysis in tissue-like structures
--- Pharmaceutical Sciences: Pharmaceutical toxicology and efficacy studies, understanding the metabolism of pharmaceuticals, pharmaceutical permeability between different tissue interactions
--- Biotechnology: complete organism mimicking
--- Diagnostic tech: metabolized pharmaceutical diagnosis
--- Others: testing of new molecules of  cosmetics products, food additives, agrochemicals, etc on emulating tissue chips

 REQUIREMENTS

Additional Requirements Suggestions
Pumping/Actuation Flow and mixing of the liquids inside microchannels require low-pulsation flow.
Some high-quality syringe pumps and pressure pumps work well.
Peristaltic and piezoelectric pumps may also be suitable but mind the possible relatively high pulsation.
Fittings All fittings in ufluidic.com are suitable with this chip. Any other connectors compatible with pitch and port size is also applicable. Reactive compatibility of the fittings is also important to be considered.
Chemicals Depends on the application of the researcher.
Visualization Epi-Fluorescent Microscopy is widely used together with microfluidic chips.
Other analysis techniques should be determined by user researchers for the experiments where optical changes inside chips do not occur.
