AlveoliX’ first organ-on-chip recreates the micro-environment of the lung alveoli, particularly of the air-blood barrier. With its ultrathin membrane and its breathing motion, the lung-on-chip allows for the culturing of human lung cells in an in vivo-like environment.

Engineered in simplicity

At AlveoliX, everything is engineered to be “as simple as possible, but not simpler”. Inspired by nature, we developed the lung-on-chip by combining expertise in microfluidics and cell biology. Our innovative chip design includes all the key features of the lung parenchyma and is easy to use.
