Organ-on-a-chip systems can be used for many different applications. As described in research of the University of Toronto (Canada) , minuscule models of the nose, mouth, eyes and lungs can be created to understand how COVID-19 invades the human body and does its damage. The role of flow instruments is crucial here, as they are used for accurate and stable flow control to grow and maintain healthy cells in organs-on-a-chip.

For example, researchers of the Verpoorte group at the University of Groningen (NL) have successfully demonstrated the use of Bronkhorst Coriolis flow controllers in their gut-on-a-chip system [2, page 17-18], where they mimicked the digestive tract . The Coriolis flow meters in the system were co-developed with the University of Twente , where our Science Officer, Joost Lötters, is involved in these activities as part-time professor. This connection between universities and Bronkhorst enables us to put the research results into practice.
