Utrecht Platform for Organoid Technology
We provide a stable framework for rapid and standardised tissue acquisition and processing
Organoid culturing methods represent a major scientific breakthrough, allowing researchers to generate ‘mini-organs’ in a dish for studying fundamental biological processes in health and disease. The technology has also entered the clinical arena, where organoid-based tests are starting to be used for personalised treatment. To fully exploit organoid technology, the Utrecht Platform for Organoid Technology (UPORT) provides a stable framework for rapid and standardised tissue acquisition and processing. Besides this UPORT also supports the generation and analysis of novel organoid-based model systems with valorisation potential and clinical relevance.
