3D Human Liver Tissue Testing Services

Organovo offers contract testing services utilizing ExVive™ 3D Bioprinted Human Liver Tissues. The tissues can be used in the evaluation of drug exposure for both acute (ex. 3-5 day) and chronic toxicity and metabolism studies. ExVive™ Human Liver Tissues remain fully functional and stable for greater than 28 days. Studies are comprised of both analytical and histological endpoints such as:

  • Standard predictive toxicology endpoints (i.e., LDH, ATP, and Albumin)
  • Gene/protein expression profiling
  • Histological tissue assessment

Let us know how we can address toxicology testing needs for your preclinical drug discovery and development programs using our 3D human liver tissues.
