Cardiomyocytes are chemically patterned to grow between two microelectrode arrays.  The electrodes are able to both stimulate the cells into contraction, as well as detect contractions. This allow Hesperos to generate a wide range of data sets.  Read the publication here.

human biology meets engineering

Hesperos, Inc. brings together biologists, surface chemists, and engineers in order to produce some of the worlds most advanced organs-on-chips. From gene expression to electrophysiology, our biologists recreate key components of various organs. Chemically patterned microchips are engineered to enable real-time monitoring of organ activity. Finally, our engineers utilize sophisticated measurement techniques in order detect and quantify minute changes.  The result of this collaboration is an ability to study therapeutics in a way which was previously only possible in clinical trials.
