This work presents the first multi-well plate that allows for simultaneous mechanical stimulation and electrical monitoring of multiple in-vitro cell cultures in parallel. Each well of the plate is equipped with an Organ-on-Chip (OOC) device consisting of a stretchable micro-electrode array (MEA). For the first time, a film assisted molding (FAM) process was employed to embed an OOC into a multi well plate format packaging. The functionality of the MEA in the device was assessed with electrochemical impedance spectroscopy. Moreover, the biocompatibility of the plate was demonstrated with cardiomyocytes derived from human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC) cultured in the wells.
