FlexFlow® Shear Stress Device

A parallel plate laminar shear stress device that allows the user to observe signaling responses to fluid flow and/or apply strain (up to 4%) to cells before, during, or after applying a shear stress.

  • Test cell alignment response to fluid flow
  • Culture your cells on matrix bonded surfaces using StageFlexer® Membranes or Culture Slips®.
  • Regulate shear stress from 0-35 dynes/cm2 using a computer-controlled peristaltic pump
  • Use with the Osci-Flow® Flow Controller to regulate the frequency of oscillation or pulsatile flow patterns
