The tissue chip is a robust 3D cell culture system that provides large format area.
Over 1000 vasculature & microvascular features.
Large format area of
3 x 3 x 1 mm
Over 30 large capillaries
(100 micron diameter)
Over 200 capillary sized vasculature channels
(30 micron diameter)
These features allow for cell growth and development incorporated into each tissue chip. Additionally, tissue chips are printed from biocompatible, transplantable materials.
We have been using Prellis since early March. What’s changed? We tried to do 3D on our own. Difference with Prellis is the size. Their size is a lot larger than ours. And the speed. Our cultures took significant time – 10 – 12 days or more, while Prellis is a 24 hour seed cycle to get started with your experiment. Plus, the ease of the technique is important, because you can pass the technique from one person to another with very little training. It allows you to start right away on the important research – we could start 24 hours after putting the cells in scaffolding.

The tissue chip can be seeded with cells and cultured under standard conditions to monitor 3D cell growth and interactions in a true 3D tissue, such as skin models or vascularized large-scale tumor models.
