Organ-on-Chip, Cell culture on-chip, chemotaxis, transmigration & invasion assays under flow.
PLUG & PLAY = LOW DEAD VOLUME with easy-to-connect tubing cables, no bulky luer connectors.
ORGAN-ON-CHIP FOR HEART, LUNG, BRAIN, KIDNEY, LIVER & MORE with long-term media / reagent perfusion in standard CO2 incubators. Pressure and flow controlled with Cellix's UniGo or 4U pumps.
CHEMOTAXIS, TRANSMIGRATION & INVASION ASSAYS UNDER FLOW: cells adhere from flow and transmigrate through embedded microporous membrane (2-10 μm pore sizes) into underlying microwell containing chemoattractant or "organ".
COMPATIBLE WITH WIDE VARIETY OF CELL TYPES
LOW SAMPLE VOLUME - even at high flow / shear rates for whole blood with ExiGo or Mirus pumps or cell suspensions with ExiGo, Mirus, UniGo, 4U and Kima pumps.
REAGENT SAVINGS with only 10µL ligand/protein coating per channel (e.g. VWF, collagen, VCAM, ICAM etc.) with standard pipette.
COMPATIBLE WITH STANDARD PIPETTES FOR EASY PROTEIN COATING OR CELL SEEDING
COMPATIBLE WITH IMMUNOFLUORESCENCE MICROSCOPY
Organ-on-chip studies: Culture heart, lung, liver, kidney or other organ cells in 4 microwells-on-chip with media perfusion provided by Cellix's 4U or UniGo pumps. Subsequently flow drugs or cells through the overlaying microchannel enabling drug-concentration studies or transmigration and invasion studies into your organ of choice.
Chemotaxis, Transmigration & Invasion Assays: Fill microwells with gels containing chemoattractants of interest. Flow cells through overlaying microchannel and study cell adhesion, chemotaxis, transmigration and invasion into underlying microwell.
