Permeability plays a pivotal role in drug research and development. It is one of the critical factors in the absorption, distribution, metabolism, and excretion (ADME) properties of drugs and their metabolites. To adequately predict ADME/PK and toxicity of your new compounds, it is key to understand their permeability in human tissues better.
We have optimized the OrganoPlate® platform for growing perfused tubules and assessing barrier function. In OrganoPlate®, you can grow tubules at almost any complexity: from epithelial monocultures to sophisticated co-cultures, including immune cells, blood vessels, and stromal tissue. This enables you to study drug adsorption, the loss of barrier function due to drug-induced toxicity, and the permeability of compounds in the intestine, kidney, retina, lung, skin, blood-brain barrier, and blood vessels.
Discover with this video how to grow and study your sophisticated three-dimensional (3D) tissue models in the OrganoPlate® platform.
