Review: We had a great time at WC12!

We send a cordial thank you to Dr. Nina Hobi from AlveoliX AG for presenting our joint poster! “Filling the gaps: A lung-on-chip for R&D and preclinical studies”

Nina had also the co-chair in the session for Human-centred Biomedical Research / In-a-Dish or On-a-Chip and gave a talk on New barrier-on-chip system for one-fits-all organ modelling: example of the gut and lung.

VITROCELL showcased the Cloud Alpha AX12 lung-on-chip exposure system and Cloud Alpha 12.

It was a pleasure to connect and innovate with everyone who visited us. Thank you for joining us!


Experience the power of a multisectoral, interdisciplinary community that comes together with a common goal to advance the 3Rs, for humans and animals.

The World Congress on Alternatives and Animal Use in the Life Sciences (WC series) was established by the Alternatives Congress Trust in Baltimore, USA in 1993 to bring together multidisciplinary stakeholders from academia, industry, government, and non-profit sectors under one roof to advance the 3Rs—to reduce, refine, and replace the use of animals in the life sciences. Since 1993, the WC series has been held biennially or triennially across the continents from the Americas to Europe and the Far East. This iconic series is coming back to the True North in 2023! We gratefully acknowledge that WC12 will be held in Niagara Falls, on the Traditional Territory of the Anishinaabe and the Haudenosaunee Peoples of Canada.
