CELL CULTURE UNDER FLOW: simple culture of endothelial cell monolayers under physiological conditions (shear stress) in flow chambers and 8 cell monoalyers in Cellix's Vena8 Endothelial+ biochips within 24-48 hours.

RECIRCULATING CULTURE MEDIA: saves reagents and no additional fluidic valves required.

INCUBATOR SAFE: Fits inside all standard CO  incubators.  No additional temperature or humidity control required.

PULSATILE: apply continuous or periodic pulsing flow to cell monolayers in culture.  

PROGRAMMABLE with iPod Touch.

EASY TO USE: control up to 4 pumps with the same controller and iPod Touch.

APPLICATIONS

  • Cell culture of endothelial cell monolayers for shear flow experiments.

  • Cell-cell adhesion shear flow assays on endothelial cell monolayers with Cellix's Mirus Evo Nanopump or ExiGo pump for studies such as:

    • Cardiovascular / Atherosclerosis​:  primary monocyte adhesion to coronary artery endothelial cells.

    • Inflammation​:  THP-1 monocyte adhesion to HUVECs under flow.

    • Asthma / COPD: eosinophil adhesion studies to human lung microvascular endothelial cells (HMVEC-L).

    • Oncology - Breast Cancer:  MDA cells adhering to TNF-alpha stimulated HUVECs under shear flow.
