High throughput hydrostatic pressure stimulation

The MCTR provides hydrostatic compression to 9 specimens in individual wells. Pressure up to 700 kPa can be programmed onto the device. The transparent culture wells allow for visual confirmation of correct specimen loading and real-time imaging during the test if desired.  The specimen chamber plate can be sterilized and the system is suitable for long-term cell culture in a laboratory incubator.

Key Features

  • Hydrostatic compression stimulation for up to 9 culture wells
  • Pressure-controlled loading up to 700kPa at 0.5Hz
  • User-friendly interface software for specifying simple, cyclic, and intermittent stimulation protocols for upload to the device controller

HydroStatic Compression

Hydrostatic compression is achieved by filling the culture well to close to the top with the compression shuttle removed. Pressurizing the top chamber results in the flexible membrane deflecting downwards to press against the surface of the liquid.
