Additional Information
The system can stretch cells in culture by applying a stress load to cells growing in vitro.
The system stretches cells in up to 6 or 8 chambers simultaneously for easy comparison between parallel samples and has 64 pre-programmed stretch patterns to save researchers time.
The mechanical stretching unit operates inside an incubator and the control unit sits outside for remote access. The stretch chamber mounting unit can be transferred to a clean bench for aseptic operations and an easier workflow.
