Figure 1: (a) The human body is conceptualized here as multiple organs connected by blood, the principle adopted in the IdMOC system. (b) A cross-section of the IdMOC plate is depicted, demonstrating the culture of multiple cell types (cells A-C) in physically separated cultures in different wells but later interconnected by flooding of a common medium. The IdMOC, thus, mimics the humans in vivo, with multiple organs as physically separated entities connected by a common fluid (blood in vivo; the overlay medium in the IdMOC)[18]
