Using ordinary tape, researchers make chip that could speed up drug development

Published Mar 27, 2020

With ordinary double-sided tape, a team at KTH assembled a chip-based model of a human gut, and then fed it chili peppers to prove it works. The technique could dramatically lower cost barriers for labs that test new drugs and analyze how the body reacts to them.

The research was just published in Lab on a Chip, where it is featured on the back cover, see article .
