El 23 de febrero a las 17h se llevó a cabo en el ciclo de charlas de la Cátedra SAMCA de Nanotecnología “Thursday´s NanoSpin-off Talks”, la charla “Beonchip: An Organ on Chip Company’s Roadmap: From Lab to Market»
Beonchip S. L. was founded in 2016 at the University of Zaragoza by Rosa Monge (PhD in mechanical Engineering), Ignacio Ochoa (specialist and PhD in biology) and Luis Fernández (PhD in microtechnology). Therefore, we have multidisciplinarity in our roots, and our team is proof of that. The collaboration of engineers and biologists has been key to design the most user friendly and accessible organ on chip devices that are true to the physiological environment of the body.
At Beonchip we use cutting edge materials and microfabrication techniques to create the next generation of in vitro testing platforms, allowing the performance of experiments in vitro that were impossible or only possible in vivo before. Therefore, reducing the cost and time span needed for the development of new drugs, cosmetics and chemicals. We firmly believe that more and better in vitro research is needed in order to reduce the ethical and economic burden of an oversized animal research market
