For the second time in a row, University of Amsterdam and AZAR Innovations jointly organise an Organ on a chip MasterClass focusing on Intestine and intestine-microbiome models on chip. This with live virtual training by STEMCELL Technologies.

TARGET GROUP: Biomedical scientists from academia and industry from around the world who wish to get started or gain more experience with intestine and intestine-microbiome on chips.

Date: 26 June 2024 8:30 – 28 June 2024 12:30
Location: Science Park 904, Amsterdam, the Netherlands

GOAL: Help scientists adopt, develop or use organ on a chip assays more efficiently.

This MasterClass consists of:

Organ on a chip MasterClass modules, lectures, e-learning, hands-on training, design your system, expert speakers, commercial demos

Organ on a chip MasterClass modules, lectures, e-learning

1. On-demand e-learning

    • What is Organ on a chip?
    • Why would you use organ on a chip?
    • What components does an organ on a chip system have?
    • What design types can you find?
    • How do you choose the closest organ on a chip system to your application?
    • Advantages and disadvantages of every design type.
    • Go through a few examples.





2. Live virtual lab session: Maintaining and assessing high quality intestinal organoid cultures by STEMCELL Technologies

Trainer: Julie Watson, Scientific Support Scientist
Julie Watson, stemcell technologies, organ on a chip masterclass, organoids trainingBackup trainer: Shyam Jose, Scientific Support Specialist

In this interactive session, scientists from STEMCELL Technologies will explain how to set up and passage intestinal organoids. The session will combine lecture slides and pre-recorded laboratory demonstrations. We’ll overview the techniques involved, review typical morphologies, and demonstrate the organoid establishment and passaging protocols. You will be able to ask questions in real time about technical aspects of the workflow, and how organoids can be used to facilitate your research.
