Overview

There are 2 images available to view - click to enlarge and scroll through the product gallery.

The MCTX can uniaxially compress 3-dimensional specimens in 6 independent wells.  A user-specified loading protocol is enacted by the system and the resulting force-displacement data is recorded to determine the stiffness profile of each specimen as a function of time.  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

  • Compression stimulation of 6 culture wells in a reusable holder.
  • Displacement-controlled loading up to 2 mm at 2Hz
  • Simultaneous position measurement on all wells with 1µm resolution
  • User-friendly interface software for specifying simple, cyclic, and intermittent stimulation protocols for download to the device controller
