Organ-on-a-chip technology, developed by the Wyss Institute at Harvard, has had a revolutionary impact on the field of tissue engineering by allowing the creation of models that mimic organ function and model diseases in a device that fits in the palm of your hand. However, organ-on-a-chip manufacturing has mostly remained unchanged since its inception. Conventional methods give you little freedom to easily customize and create inner-chip architectures for your experimental models.

Allevi’s Organ-on-a-chip kit allows to create custom 3D geometries within organ-on-a-chip devices and allows for design freedom to create custom in vitro organ systems that were previously not possible. The kit comes with everything needed to make these custom chips in a lab.

Victor does not really exist. He is a pseudonym for several writers in the 3D Printing Media Network team. As a pseudonym, Victor has also had a fascinating made-up life story, living as a digital (and virtual) nomad to cover the global AM industry. He has always worked extra-hard whenever he was needed to create unique content. However, lately, as our editorial team has grown, he is mostly taking care of publishing press releases.
