BiowireTM II: The Next Generation In Vitro Human Cardiac Model
Currently, new medicine development requires substantial time and capital, and yet medicines face frequent withdrawal from the market due to cardiovascular complications. Cell culture and animal testing models are unable to adequately predict drug effects seen in patients.
TARA’s innovative platform represents a leap forward
TARA produces heart tissue from stem cells.
TARA’s Biowire platform stimulates the heart cells to make mature heart tissues.
The TARA tissues mimic adult heart muscles so that realistic changes in human cardiac function can be measured without human testing.
TARA can measure the key function of the heart to understand changes in the rate of heartbeat, the calcium handling governing the heartbeat and the force of the heartbeat.
