Cambridge Consultants, a global product development and technology consultancy firm, and French startup Neuro Engineering Technologies Research Institute (NETRI) have achieved a brain-on-a-chip technology and lensless imaging approach that detects the activity of neurons in brain tissue. The technology uses a simulation of organ function on a chip.
Cambridge Consultants was able to accelerate the processing of individual images by over three orders of magnitude, moving from approximately 20 minutes to process an image to hundreds of milliseconds.
The researchers expect the technology to reduce the time and cost of testing new therapies for safety and efficacy. Brain-on-a-chip technologies seek to apply this approach to the…READ MORE
