The EpiIntestinal tissue model (SMI-100) offers numerous advantages versus currently available preclinical testing models such as Caco-2. 基于人体细胞的3D模型包含肠细胞, paneth cell, M cells, 丛细胞与肠干细胞分化成高度分化,  polarized epithelium. The EpiIntestinalFT tissue (SMI-100-FT) includes an underlying lamina propria containing normal human intestinal fibroblasts and is useful to study inflammation, wound repair, 先天免疫反应, and fibrosis. Both tissues are cultured at the air-liquid interface (ALI) to allow physiological (luminal) exposure conditions. EpiIntestinal recapitulates  many aspects of normal intestinal function including  barrier, metabolism, 炎症和毒性反应, 类似于人体的肠道组织.


Important features of EpiIntestinal include the presence of functional tight junctions and brush borders at the apical tissue surface.  In vivo, brush borders are in direct contact with luminal contents and include at least 22 metabolic enzymes and 19 drug transporters.  EpiIntestinal tight junctions and brush borders closely mimic human structure and physiology.

The EpiIntestinal 3D human tissue model is routinely utilized for screening pharmaceuticals for a range of endpoints including GI toxicity and inflammation, drug metabolism, drug permeation, fibrosis, 以及肠道感染. Straightforward protocols and the evaluation of early molecular and cellular endpoints often allow scientists to acquire data in days, not weeks or months.

GI Toxicity

Use EpiIntestinal for a highly predictive assay to evaluate GI toxicity of pharmaceuticals.



Utilize EpiIntestinal’s highly controlled in vitro culture conditions to study intestinal inflammation, wound repair, 并评估治疗效果.


Drug Delivery & Metabolism

Utilize EpiIntestinal for highly predictive and human-relevant drug delivery.  评估原料药的生物利用度(内流)和外排运输, drug metabolism, 以及药物-药物相互作用.  上皮肠可与其他生理系统(如.g. liver cells) in microfluidic systems to examine the effect of drug metabolites on GI toxicity or to predict drug permeation/absorption via the “luminal” side of the tissue.



Use EpiIntestinalFT to better understand mechanisms of wound healing in the gut and to evaluate therapeutic effects.

Visual inspection: 所有组织都经过目视检查,如果发现物理缺陷, 纸巾被拒绝装运

Sterility: 在整个生产过程中使用的所有介质都要进行无菌检查. Maintenance medium is incubated with and without antibiotics for 1 week and checked for sterility. The agarose gel from the 24-well plate used for shipping is also incubated for 1 week and checked for any sign of contamination

病原体筛查: All cells are screened and are negative for HIV, hepatitis B and hepatitis C using PCR. However, no known test method can offer complete assurance that the cells are pathogen free. Thus, these products and all human derived products should be handled at BSL-2 levels (biosafety level 2) or higher as recommended in the CDC-NIH manual, 微生物和生物医学实验室的生物安全,” 1998.
