Tara Biosystems specialists created heart tissue for medication testing

The Tara Biosystems startup has developed artificial human heart tissue. When it is connected to electricity, it pulsates as in the real organ. Researchers use tissues to test various medications. In the future, this will help scientists to leave expensive and complex tests in clinical settings behind.

The process of growing cardiac tissue from stem cells takes 3 months. Then the team of specialists tests the meds to see how the human heart will react to them. The length of each sample is 3 mm. In total, the company has about 200 copies.

So far, the organization conducts only toxicological tests. In the future, experts plan to test tissues that are subject to some kind of disease. If all goes well, scientists will be developing tissues with individual characteristics of a particular person.
