Application Areas


Basic Research

Cellular behavior and microcirculatory dysfunction:

SynVivo chips can be used to study real-time cell-cell interactions for:

  • Inflammation (leukocyte-endothelium),
  • Cancer (tumor-endothelium),
  • Thrombosis (platelet-endothelium), and
  • Infection (microbial-endothelium)

under physiological fluid flow conditions representing healthy and pathological conditions.

Drug particle adhesion and uptake mechanisms:

Drug particle adhesion is the critical step for successfully delivery of drugs. Use SynVivo to decipher the adhesion mechanisms of particles and subsequent uptake by cells under healthy and pathological conditions.

Drug Delivery

SynVivo chips predict targeting efficacies of drugs in vivo by mimicking the cellular makeup of desired cell populations. Use SynVivo to optimize drug delivery to target cells.

Drug Discovery

SynVivo chips allow screening of drugs (chemical and biological) under conditions mimicking in vivo scenario. Reduce false positive and false negative outcomes resulting in rapid screening of drugs.


Scalable for high throughput/content


SynVivo chips allow drug interactions under both perfusion and diffusion based conditions. Use SynVivo to characterize drug toxicity and selection of optimal drug for desired pathological condition.
