Organism-on-chip.

Where C. elegans Research meets Microtechnologies...

Nagi Bioscience proudly introduces the first Organism-on-Chip technology, allowing “in vivo testing at the in vitro scale”. Our solution combines the use of a simple yet complete organism for in vivo testing – the tiny worm “Caenorhabditis elegans” – with the first technological platform for its fully automated in vitro handling, culture and analysis. Our organism-on-chip technology bridges the gap between cell-based and vertebrate animal models...

Caenorhabditis elegans : "Nature's gift to Science".

The title of my lecture is “Nature’s gift to Science” [...] about how the great diversity of the living world can both inspire and serve innovation in biological research. Current ideas of the uses of Model Organisms spring from the exemplars of the past and choosing the right organism for one’s research is as important as finding the right problems to work on. In all of my research these two decisions have been closely intertwined. Without doubt the fourth winner of the Nobel prize this year is Caenorhabditis elegans...
