MIMETAS develops organ-on-a-chip technology for testing of new medicines. Its microfluidic technology enables testing of drug compounds in high-throughput on miniaturized organ models. These models have better predictivity compared to laboratory animals and conventional cell culture models. The MIMETAS OrganoPlate platform supports 3D cell culture under continuous perfusion, membrane-free co-culture and boundary- and gradient formation. MIMETAS develops and validates customised disease, toxicology and transport models and ultimately will make its technology available for personalized therapy selection.

MIMETAS Launches Ready-to-Use 3D Adult Stem Cell Organoid Tubules

Mar 9, 2023

MIMETAS Launches Ready-to-Use 3D Adult Stem Cell Organoid Tubules Thursday, March 9, 2023 LEIDEN, the Netherlands, March 07 / B3C newswire / -- MIMETAS, a leading company in the field of organ-on-a-chip-based disease models, announces that it has launched its Adult Stem Cell (ASC)-derived tubular organoids in an assay-ready format. As part of its OrganoReady® product line, MIMETAS offers two organoid-based products: ASC-derived Colon1 and Kidney2 Organoid tubules. “We are thrilled to offer this cutting-edge technology to the research community,” says Jos Joore, co-CEO of MIMETAS. “We’ve worked for several years to optimize these OrganoReady® organoid products. As a result, our early-access users will be the first in the world to have license-free access to ready-to-use, donor-relevant organoid tubules of consistent quality.” MIMETAS has strategically collaborated with HUB Organoid Technology (HUB) since October 2019 to develop organoid models on a chip. HUB Organoids are derived directly from ASCs and do not require reprogramming or transforming stem cells, thus maintaining donor-specific properties. Combining the OrganoPlate®, MIMETAS’ proprietary microfluidic platform, with HUB organoid technology, organoids are grown as perfused 3D tubular structures that can be accessed on both apical and basal sides. The fully optimized OrganoReady® Colon Organoid and OrganoReady® Kidney Organoid products are ideal for applications such as mechanistic toxicology and drug-induced organ injury. With 64 organoids on a single plate, the models are amenable to medium- to high-throughput screening. In addition MIMETAS can develop any type of organoid model in the OrganoPlate® on request. The launch comes at a strategic moment. Recently, the FDA Modernization Act 2.0 was signed by US president Joe Biden. The act advocates the use of innovative technologies such as organoids and Organ-on-a-Chip as alternatives to animal testing. For high resolution please click the image.
