Tissue-engineered alternatives to animal testing in scientific research and drug development


Nortis is developing the next generation of in-vitro systems that will allow scientists to better understand the causes of human disease. These systems represent urgently-awaited alternatives to animal testing, promising to drastically accelerate the discovery of new therapeutic drugs and the evaluation of toxic substances.

Nortis's in-vitro systems are based on small segments of tissues and organs grown from human-derived cells in disposable chip-like devices. This makes testing compounds faster, cheaper, and most importantly, more predictive than animal testing. We anticipate that Nortis's tissue-engineered in-vitro systems will become essential tools for finding cures for the most debilitating diseases of our time.
