Advances in microfluidic technology further open up opportunities for pharma R&D teams to conduct human-like clinical trials for drug development.

The technology extends further into hospitals for clinical diagnostic testing to help physicians prescribe the most effective treatment. A major application of microfluidics in clinical studies includes the development of organ-on-a-chip solutions that mimic non-performing systems in the body to activate the correct responses.

Finnish startup Finnadvance manufactures multi-channel 3D microfluidic organ-on-a-chip systems that simulate the activities, mechanics, and physiological response of entire organs and organ systems.
