Olivier Frey's Biography

Olivier Frey, Product Manager Microphysiological Systems, InSphero AG, Schlieren, Switzerland

Olivier Frey leads the Technology & Platforms group at InSphero AG, Switzerland. Before joining InSphero, Olivier Frey, was group leader at the Department of Biosystems Science and Engineering of ETH Zurich, Switzerland. In the Bio Engineering Laboratory of Prof. Andreas Hierlemann he was responsible for the development of integrated microfluidic systems for single cell handling and 3D tissue cultures. Included are in particular multi-tissue systems, or so-called “Body-on-a-Chip” configurations based on 3D microtissue spheroids for microtissue culturing, analysis and interaction. Olivier Frey received his Diploma in Mechanical Engineering from ETH Zurich and his Doctoral degree in Micro Engineering from EPF Lausanne, Switzerland, Laboratory (SAMLAB) of Prof. Nico de Rooij.

The presentation will focus on recent developments and experimental results combining spherical microtissues with integrated microfluidic technology for creating microphysiological multi-tissue systems. I will highlight, why spheroids as a 3D cell culturing model are suitable for such application and how we implemented their integration into microfludic culturing systems for automated parallelized assays bearing high flexibility in application, robustness and usability. Further, the implementation of microsensors and pumps will be presented and discussed.
