Updated: Oct 4, 2022

The Kima Pump is a simple to use, iPod Touch controlled microfluidic pump for life science applications including: aiding microfluidic pump for life science

The movie shows the application of endothelial cell culture in Cellix's Vena8 Endothelial+ biochips followed by flowing a nanoparticle solution over the cultured endothelial cells for a period of time. The Kima pump is controlled by the iKima Application for use with the iPod Touch and iPhone. The Kima pump is placed inside a standard incubator while the iPod Touch or iPhone, as it's controller, sits on the Universal dock outside the incubator. The Kima pump connects easily to Cellix's Vena8 Endothelial+ biochip and other manufacturer's flow chambers via fully autoclaveable tubing and delivers pulses of fresh media/solution to cells seeded inside the microchannels. The iKima App is available for download from Apple's iTunes Store.
