Our poster at ASCCT 2021

October 2021 – Karina Cuanalo-Contreras, PhD, et al.

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!

Introduction to Cell Culture Inserts – Presentation from the 10th annual meeting of ASCCT

October 2021 – Karina Cuanalo-Contreras, PhD

Cell culture inserts are membrane-based systems widely used to study permeability and toxicity of drugs, chemicals and cosmetics, among other applications. In this presentation, we introduce you the science and technology behind our cellQART® Cell Culture Inserts.

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

The role of manufacturers towards the 3Rs – Presentation from the WC11 Congress on Alternatives and Animal use in the life sciences

August 2021 – Karina Cuanalo-Contreras, PhD

We participated at WC11. The topic this year was the 3Rs in transition: from development to application.

In this talk we raise awareness of the importance of the inclusion of manufactures in the development of NAMs, both at the scientific and regulatory level.

In vivo to in vitro – Presentation from Advances in Cell and Tissue Culture conference 2021

June 2021 – Karina Cuanalo-Contreras, PhD

Animal models often fail to replicate essential aspects of disease in humans and they bring many experimental and ethical concerns. Consequently, there is an urgent need to develop physiologically relevant animal-free in vitro methods to accelerate the in vivo to in vitro transition.

In this talk from the 2021 Advances in Cell and Tissue Culture international conference - Animal Free Research session,  we discuss the current challenges in the field and how to transform them into opportunities towards the 3Rs principle.

Our poster at MPS word summit 2021

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.
