VENA8 WITH GLASS COVERSLIP

The Vena8™ biochip with/without glass coverslip adhered; with/without treatment for cell rolling and adhesion on proteins; seeding of cells or microbes enabling subsequent study of drug interaction, imaging or molecular biology studies under shear flow. Compatible with brightfield, phase contrast imaging, immunofluorescence and confocal microscopy.

Features:

  • Cell rolling and adhesion on proteins; seeding of cells or microbes enabling subsequent study of drug interaction, imaging or molecular biology studies under shear flow.

  • Biochips are supplied with or without glass coverslip attached.  

  • Glass coverslip may be treated or non-treated; e.g. glass may be treated with chelated Cu2+ ion tethered to the high-density PEG coating - surface of the microchannels may then be easily coated via pipetting and the protein binds via the poly-histidine tag.

  • Biochips available for low or high flow rates / shear stresses.

  • Ideal for whole blood, primary cells, rare cells e.g. where samples are more difficult to retrieve or culture or only small sample volumes available.

  • Perfect for high flow rates / high shear stresses e.g. platelet adhesion, aggregation and thrombi formation studies for thrombosis using whole blood.  In conventional flow chambers / perfusion chambers; significant volumes of blood would be required making the assay impossible.

  • Suitable for biofilm applications; particularly Vena8 biochips supplied without glass coverslip:  user may attach any type of coupon to bottom of the biochip.

  • No assembly of the biochip is required unlike many conventional perfusion chambers / flow chambers.

  • No luer lock connections which increase dead volume.  Cellix's biochips have a unique plug & play connection with tubing connections which are autoclaveable and reuseable.

Applications:  

 

Flow assays using minimal sample volumes (whole blood, cell suspensions, proteins etc.); immunofluorescence and confocal microscopy.
