The Vena8 Endothelial+™ biochip is ideal for studying cell-cell interaction. Endothelial cells are easily seeded (via standard pipette) and cultured inside the microcapillaries of the biochip. As cells flow through the microcapillary of the Vena8 Endothelial+™ biochip, the cell surface receptors may interact with the endothelial cell monolayer which coats the microcapillary walls. Ideal for use with phase contrast imaging and fluorescence imaging to study cell-cell interactions under conditions mimicking physiological flow.
Each biochip contains 8 capillaries in parallel which can be seeded with endothelial cells for culture of 8 monolayers in parallel and subsequent study of cell-cell interaction studies under shear flow. Each 10 pack contains 80 assays. Each 5 pack contains 40 assays.
