Methods and Apparatus Suitable for Interrogating Biological Systems: Tumor-on-Chip
This technology is a tumor-on-chip that can be utilized in research and development of drugs. The tumor-on-chip is a 3D structure that consists of multiple cellular components found within a tumor micro-environment (TME). The TME is the environment around a tumor that consists of both cellular and non-cellular components. The TME plays a large role...
