Food analysis with intestine-on-a-chip

Dynamic42, Jena, Germany
The biotech company Dynamic42 from Jena is developing an intestine-on-a-chip model to investigate the toxicity of food additives or environmental toxins. The intestinal cells are supplied with nutrients by an artificial blood flow and develop villi-like structures and functions like in the real human intestine. Optionally, bacteria from the human intestinal flora can also be introduced. The intestine-on-chip method is used, for example, to test bacterial cultures from yoghurts. It is analysed whether the cultures improve, worsen or have no influence on the function of the intestinal cells.
