Single-well devices designed to allow the user to observe signaling responses to strain in real time on a microscope stage.
The StageFlexer® is designed to strain cells in monolayer while viewing the cellular activity with an upright microscope. The Inverted StageFlexer® device allows observation with an inverted microscope.
The StagePresser™ is designed to compress a single tissue sample or cell-seeded construct in 3D culture while viewing cellular activity under a microscope.
Fluid Shear Application:
The FlexFlow™ is a parallel plate laminar flow device designed to apply fluid shear stress and/or cyclic strain to cells in culture while providing a means for viewing cell activity under a microscope in real time.
