Microfluidics biochips

tebu-bio provides a range of different biochips, pumping solutions and analysis software by Cellix, which enable researchers to accurately mimic shear stress / shear flow rates found in vivo.  
 
Our solutions can be used to measure cell rolling, adhesion, migration and transmigration to antibody-coated or endothelial cell-cultured microcapillaries, producing IC50 curves under shear stress conditions mimicking microcapillary, venous or arterial physiological flow.  Data is more physiologically relevant resulting in a truly translational tool for drug discovery and applied cell biology.
 

Biochips

All biochips mimic human capillaries by working in tandem with the different instrumentation platforms available from Cellix. For some applications, Cellix biochips are compatible with syringe pumps from Harvard Apparatus, World Precision Instruments, KD Scientific and many more.

 

 

Features

  • Applicable for cell rolling and adhesion studies to adhesion molecules or cell-cell interaction studies.
  • Suitable for a wide range of cell suspensions (primary and cell lines) including T-cells, monocytes, pbmcs, neutrophils, eosinophils, platelets and whole blood (heparanized).
  • Vena8 Fluoro+:  Easy to coat microcapillaries with standard pipette with a range of different adhesion molecules including VCAM, ICAM, MAdCAM, fibronectin, vWF, collagen, fibrinogen etc.
  • Vena8 Endothelial+: Easy to seed and culture a variety of endothelial cells (monolayers) including HUVEC, HMVEC, HCAECs etc.
  • Biochip plastic is optically clear permitting detailed microscopy studies.
  • 0.05 to 20 dyne/cm2 shear stresses easily obtained and controlled by the Mirus Evo Nanopump.
  • Shear stress may be preset to incrementally increase during an assay.
  • Real-time imaging under flow conditions.
