Thank you to everyone who stopped by Flexcell's booth at ASCB 2019 where we introduced our new Cell Soft™ Soft Substrate Culture Ware! With CellSoft™, Flexcell® has created even softer substrates to match the material properties of tissue niches and better meet the needs of biological laboratories wanting to grow their cells on native stiffness substrates. CellSoft™ comes in various stiffnesses (moduli range 1-80 kPa), and plate formats (round dishes and multi-well plates). It is available covalently bonded with Collagen I or other matrices, pre-sterilized and ready to use. CellSoft™ BioFlex™ culture plates are the only commercially viable product to grow cells on a soft substrate and stretch your cells with the FX-6000™ Tension System.
In this study, human ADSCs (hADSCs) were applied cyclic stretch stimulation under an in vitro stretching model for designated duration. We found that mechanical stretch significantly promoted the proliferation, adhesion and migration of hADSCs, suppressing cellular apoptosis and increasing the production of pro‐healing cytokines.
The Biotechnology Department at Alamance Community College (ACC) shows no signs of slowing down its historic push to provide students with the latest cutting-edge training in new technologies that have long paved the way for career opportunities in the biomanufacturing industry.
Burlington’s Flexcell has manufactured scientific products for testing cell-level biochemical reactions since 1987.Flexcell products have medical applications across fields like orthopedics, cardiovascular medicine, pulmonary health, and tissue engineering research.
