Background and Technology Description
Over the past 3+ years, Los Alamos scientists have developed a milli-scale surrogate human organ bioreactor, coupled with highly sensitive analytical technologies. Dubbed the Advanced Tissue-engineered Human Ectypal Networks Analyzer (ATHENA), the platform is a human organ construct developed for screening of lead compounds, testing of medical countermeasures, and toxicity testing.
Periodically the Laboratory notifies the public of technologies and capabilities that may be of interest. These technologies may extend from recent inventions, technology opportunity or capabilities that may have utility outside the Laboratory.
