Device Mimics Environment of Mouth With Living Human Cells to Study New Oral Care Products

Colgate-Palmolive has partnered with Draper, an engineering firm, to develop a platform that models human gum tissues to help them develop new oral care products. The device is based on Draper’s human organ systems (HOS) technology and works by introducing prepositioned samples of human cells to different drugs and chemical compounds. While within the device, the cells […] This post Device Mimics Environment of Mouth With Living Human Cells to Study New Oral Care Products appeared first on Medgadget.
