This focus article introduces the concept of NutriChip, an integrated microfluidic platform for investigating the potential of the immuno-modulatory function of dairy food. The core component of the NutriChip is a miniaturized artificial human gastrointestinal tract (GIT), which consists of a confluent layer of epithelial cells separated from a co-culture of immune cells by a permeable membrane. This setting creates conditions mimicking the human GIT and allows studying processes that… CONTINUE READING
