Who We Are

Purpose:
Our purpose is to create invitro biomimetic platforms that offer scientific research enhanced tools
that enable impactful innovation. The platform would also replace animal and human testing to make drug discovery faster, safer and cheaper. Finally, the platform can able a more precise and more personalised medicine.

Vision:
to create the best invitro biomimetic platform to accelerate scientific progress and enable safer, more precise and more personalised medicine.

Mission:
is to create the easiest-to-use and most accureate organ on a chip device for invitro testing. We will acheive this by creating the exact ductal tissue structure and spatial assembly of the different tissue types and extracellular matrix components constituting the healthy or diseased organoids. This allows for creating an accurate replica of the invivo cell and tissue interaction within its micro-environment.

Values:
Technical passion / inventing
Resilience and adaptability
Collaborative culture
Obsession in quality / perfectionism
Transparency and integrity
