AxoSim publishes first demonstration of all-human Nerve-on-a-Chip myelinated platform

News

AxoSim, Inc., the premier provider of neuroscience discovery platforms that mimic the structure and function of the human nervous system, today announced publication of a new study of its Nerve-on-a-Chip® technology in Nature Research’s Scientific Reports. The Nerve-on-a-Chip platform uses bioengineered living human cells in a 3D environment to accurately recreate the nervous system in both form and function. The study shows that the Nerve-on-a-Chip platform accurately provides key physiological readouts that are needed for clinical neurology and in vivo neuropathology testing. Importantly, it is the first to demonstrate myelination of human nerve cells using human Schwann cells, and also shows that the Nerve-on-a-Chip technology achieves key electrical and structural metrics.
