A novel approach to study penetration of drug molecules through various membranes, including cultivated cell membranes, ex vivo membranes and tissues, biopsy samples, artificial membranes etc. The devise is based on microfluidistics, which provides several advantages. Concentrations of test substance at donor chamber can be low i.e. close to physiological concentrations and consumption of test compound(s) is minimal. In addition, toxic effects of your test compound can be tested with targeted membranes. The device can also be used as dynamic platform for cell culture based test models.
