The Vena8 Fluoro+™ biochip is ideal for rolling and adhesion assays on protein coatings or cell monolayers.  Ideal for thrombosis; whole blood assays.  Compatible with immunofluorescence and confocal microscopy.

Features:

  • Disposable plastic biochips for cell analysis of cells under shear flow including rolling and adhesion assays on protein coatings or cell monolayers.
  • Immunofluorescence staining of living and fixed cells.
  • 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 standard flow chambers / perfusion chambers; significant volumes of blood would be required making the assay impossible.
  • No assembly of the biochip is required unlike many standard 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.
