Cellix Webinar: VenaFlux Platform Technical Presentation

Details
Technical overview of the components which comprise the VenaFlux platform; a microfluidic platform for the investigation of cell adhesion, migration and transmigration under shear flow conditions. Components include Cellix's Mirus Nanopump, different microscope workstations (Zeiss, Nikon, Leica, Olympus etc.); motorized stages (Marzhauser, Ludl); digital cameras (Hamamatsu, QImaging, DeltaPix etc.) and cell image analysis software (DucoCell, Image-Pro Plus, MetaMorph etc.).

Cellix Webinar: Kima Pump Applications

Details
The Kima Pump is a simple to use, iPod Touch controlled microfluidic pump for life science applications including: aiding cell culture (e.g. endothelial cells) under physiological conditions (shear flow) in biochips and flow/perfusion chambers; biofilm culture; investigation of nanoparticle uptake in cells; electrophysiology experiments and long-term microfluidic toxicology studies. This webinar shows the application of endothelial cell culture in Cellix's Vena8 Endothelial+ biochips; biofilm culture in Cellix's Vena8 Fluoro+ biochips and investigation of nanoparticle uptake in endothelial cells in Cellix's biochips. 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 Vena biochip range and other manufacturer's flow chambers via fully autoclaveable tubi...
