Our Company


We think as biologists, feel as researchers and act like engineers.

The peculiarity of React4Life is the coexistence of strategic vision along with technical and scientific skills in the team that help to seize the needs of the life science world and provide them with effective technological solutions.

By working with the world’s leading scientists in the field of tissue engineering, 3D tissue models and cellular biology, we aim to advance disease knowledge and drug testing by MIVO® technology, the next generation of effective in vitro 3D fluid-dynamic assays.

Our History

React4life was launched in 2016 as an innovative company by a team of scientists and promoters of breakthrough technologies.

In 2010 Maurizio Aiello, a physicist with several interests in science, technology, emerging trends and economics, met Silvia Scaglione, a bioengineer researcher with significant international scientific experience in tissue engineering, biomaterials and bioreactors. 

In 2016 React4life was founded and a team of scientists and promoters of breakthrough technologies started to join them both in the headquarter and lab in Genoa.

Scientific validations and happy clients among high-level institutions, research centres and pharma companies consider MIVO® – Multi In Vitro Organ as the most innovative organ-on-chip technology; it can emulate  the human biology in vitro towards more predictive and reliable models.

Our Vision

We have the ambition to turn the promise of biomedical research into concrete benefits for society.

Our Mission

We aim to spread our cutting-edge MIVO® technology and increase the number of its applications, making it a standard in vitro tool for everyday testing. Our goal is to accelerate drug development and boost personalized oncological medicine.

Our Values

We believe in high-quality standards and sound scientific results to lead our products to excellence. 

Honesty, efficiency, reliability and respect are principles behind our relationships with customers, suppliers and partners.
