InTESTine™ Intestinal absorption, metabolism and inflammatory responses: human intestinal absorption and metabolism
The TNO InTESTine™ system is developed to study the absorption and translocation of pharmaceutical, biological and nutritional compounds across the intestinal wall in a physiologically relevant model. In this medium-throughput system, fresh ex vivo intestinal tissue from human or animal origin is mounted into a two compartment model with an apical and basolateral side. In order to study regional differences in absorption, tissue from different intestinal regions (duodenum, jejunum, ileum & colon) can be tested in parallel under controlled conditions.
