Our cell stretching devices make it simple to implement and analyze mechanotransduction studies in your lab, with pre-programmed ideal stretch patterns and easy-to-use protocols. Whether you’re studying cardiomyocytes, endothelial cells, smooth muscle cells, or osteocytes, our proprietary technology can help unlock the full potential of your research.

Things to consider when setting up a stretch experiment

Stretch experiments are an important tool for modeling biological function and are the focus of great interest in research and industry.  This guide provides advice on how to set up a stretch experiment.

Cell Pressurizing Systems

As a researcher in cell biology, you’re always looking for new ways to better understand the complex and intricate workings of cells. You know that cells are exposed to dynamic forces like shear stress, mechanical strain, and hydrostatic pressure in their natural environments. To observe the response to specific stimuli, you need to be able to simplify the living conditions of your cultured cells.

That’s where the Strex Pressure System comes in. With this cutting-edge technology, you can now apply pneumatic pressure to your cultured cells, mimicking physiological stimuli. Whether you’re studying endothelial cells, smooth muscle cells, or epithelial cells in the bladder, kidneys, or intestines, this system can help you achieve your research goals. The Strex Pressure System is fully automated and can be run in either continuous or cyclic mode, allowing you to customize your experiments to fit your specific needs.

Controlled-Rate Freezer

As a researcher, you know the importance of maintaining high cell viability during the cryopreservation process. But using traditional liquid nitrogen methods can be time-consuming and complicated.

The CYTO Sensei Controlled-Rate Freezer offers a solution, making cryopreservation simple and effective. This compact benchtop system requires only a standard wall outlet and a laptop to start, and can easily be programmed with a custom freezing protocol. With the ability to accommodate vials, plates, straws, and more, the CYTO Sensei utilizes a Stirling engine to cool cells down to -80°C without the use of liquid nitrogen. The system even generates an automatic report of readings from 3 temperature sensors, and a built-in heater prepares the freezer block for the next protocol. With a capacity of up to 55 cryogenic vials or a 96 well plate, the CYTO Sensei can be customized to fit your specific needs. Revolutionize your cryopreservation process with the CYTO Sensei Controlled-Rate Freezer.
