We are glad to announce that our latest study “Micro-electrode channel guide (µECG) technology: an online method for continuous electrical recording in a human beating heart-on-chip” is now on-line on Biofabrication.
In this paper we present a new device capable of monitoring the electrical activity of beating cardiac microtissues, together with a proof-of-concept pharmacological validation.
This work is the result of a great collaboration between Academia (Politecnico di Milano) and Industries (BiomimX® Srl & Accelera Srl).

2020 has taught us how crucial is to invest in Research, mostly to reduce technical time for testing drugs and medical devices.
Paola Occhetta, BiomimX CEO, and Marco Rasponi, BiomimX President, will explain how our startup contributes to bring pharmaceutical companies to the market with more efficient therapies in a shorter time, thanks to our innovative technologies.
Don’t miss the episode of STARTUPPER broadcast on Thursday 21st January starting at 8 PM CET on channel 821 Sky.
January 20, 2021 (2.30-3.30 PM CET)
Upcoming webinar! Within the SINERGIA framework we are glad to announce that professor Paul Bourgine will be the first speaker of our webinars series, invited by BiomimX® Srl. Prof. Bourgine’s laboratory targets the development of miniaturized human bone organs (hOssicles) in mice to be used as advanced model of healthy and malignant human hematopoiesis. This talk will first cover how embryonic processes can be harnessed for the engineering of hOssicles. The advantages of the hOssicle approach as opposed to standard in vitro and in vivo models will be discussed.
December 7th-10th , 2020
