Formally defined, MicroPhysiological Systems (MPS) are in vitro models composed of cells, tissue explants, and stem-cell derived ‘organoid’ formations of human or animal origin. These cell models provide translational biochemical, electrical, and/or physiomechanical responses to represent organ and tissue function. They have great potential to replace some animals used in research.
Are you interested in using an microphysiological system in your research? Below you can explore Microphysiological System Companies offering commercially available advanced in vitro models across a variety of organs. Individual technology providers may offer products or services, share key publications, and encourage contact and questions via the outreach buttons.
At the bottom of the page, you can find a list of enabling technologies that help end-users perform experiments with MPS platforms or extract data from them.
Our aim is to provide an intuitive and consolidated map of the fast-growing MPS field, and to stimulate impactful interactions between industry, regulatory, and technology providers.
