In Greek Mythology, Hesperos is the name for the planet Venus in the evening sky, the "most splendid star in the heavens"….a unique name chosen for a company that celebrates the value of individuals.
Since the 1990's our scientific team has led the effort to characterize individual's biology with body-on-a-chip systems. We have been at the forefront of every major scientific discovery in this realm which has spanned the fields of nano science, computational modeling, biomedical engineering, physiology, cell biology and surface chemistry.
We seek to revolutionize toxicology testing and release the creative ingenuity of industry.
What We've Achieved so far
- Pumpless body-on-a-chip platform which provides a low cost, low maintenance platform that is readily scalable.
- Integrated computational modeling of live physiological responses within the chip environment.
- Serum-free cellular medium which allows multi-organ system communication for both acute and chronic testing of a compounds toxicity and efficacy.
- Physiological monitoring of functional neurons, cardiac, muscle, and neuro-muscular junctions.
