World day for labortory animal – towards replacement
April 2023 – Karina Cuanalo-Contreras
On the occasion of the World Day of Laboratory Animal, cellQART® is committed to promoting the advancement of science in a humane way.
One way to achieve this is through the use of cell culture methods that do not involve animal testing, such as 2D cultures, tissue engineering, and organs-on-a-chip.

Today, we commemorate animals used in research and testing. At the same time, we would like to reflect on the harms and costs of animal experimentation.

For many years in vivo testing has been the gold standard for toxicology. Currently, the field is transitioning towards the use of new approach methodologies (NAMs). Read our poster to find out how the manufacturer industry is supporting this transition!
Our poster at BioBarriers 2021
September 2021 – Karina Cuanalo-Contreras, PhD, et al.
We participated at BioBarriers 2021. A conference focused on the non-invasive drug delivery at interfaces of the outer epithelia.
We contributed with our poster "ALI in vitro cultures for airway epithelium research". The respiratory tract epithelium represents an attractive route for drug-delivery. It is accessible through the mouth or nose and it contains 100 m2 of highly vascularized surface. Click here to learn more

Curious on the science behind the microporous membranes integrated in our cellQART® Inserts? Check out this poster!
Over the last decades, the incorporation of microporous membranes into microfluidics, organ-on-a-chip and cell culture inserts has grown significantly. Tissue-culture treated membranes serve as excellent support for cell growth, efficient nutrient supply and differentiation. In this poster, we shed light on the technology and science behind our TRAKETCH® Microporous Membranes, integrated in our home brand of cellQART® Cell Culture inserts.
