Culture Plates for Flexcell's® Tension and Tissue Train® Systems.

   

24-well HT BioFlex® Culture Plates
24-well flexible silicone elastomer bottomed culture plates with microplate reader compatible size, optically clear for direct viewing of cells with inverted or upright microscopes.
Available with white frame for bioluminescence measurements or with black frame for fluorescence tests.
Please note: The use of the 24-well HT BioFlex
® culture plates requires the 24-well HT Baseplate Kit. Please click here for further information on the Baseplate Kit.

6-well BioFlex® Culture Plates
Flexible bottom culture plate used with BioFlex® Loading Stations for providing equibiaxial strain to cells in monolayer culture.
Please note: BioFlex
® Loading Stations™ are part of Flexcell's® Tension system, but are also available separately.

6-well Tissue Train® Culture Plates
Flexible bottomed culture plate used with Arctangle™ Loading Stations and Trough Loaders™ to apply uniaxial strain to linear 3D cell-seeded gel constructs.
The plates are available with either CEREX
® (a non-woven nylon mesh) or - new! - with foam (open-cell porous) anchor stems. The anchor material has not been found to effect the compaction kinetics of the collagen gel. However, the foam anchor stems allow for increased construct survival time as measured by time to construct failure/detachment from the anchors.
Please note: Tissue Train
® system includes Arctangle® Loading Stations™ and Trough Loaders™, but these accessories are also available separately.

6-well Trapezoidal Tissue Train® Culture Plates
Flexible bottomed culture plate used with Arctangle® Loading Stations™ and Trapezoidal Trough Loaders™ to apply uniaxial strain to trapezoidal shaped 3D cell-seeded gel constructs.
The plates are available with either CEREX
® (a non-woven nylon mesh) or - new! - with foam (open-cell porous) anchor stems.
The anchor material has not been found to effect the compaction kinetics of the collagen gel. However, the foam anchor stems allow for increased construct survival time as measured by time to construct failure/detachment from the anchors.
Please note: Trapezoidal Trough Loaders™ are also available separately.

6-well Tissue Train® Circular Foam Culture Plates
Flexible bottomed culture plate used with BioFlex® Loading Stations™ for providing biaxial strain to circular 3D cell-seeded gel constructs (no Trough Loaders™ or other molds required).
The plates have a matrix-bonded foam circular anchor for improved cell attachement.
Please note: BioFlex
® Loading Stations™ are compoments of the Tension system, but are also available separately.

6-well UniFlex® Culture Plates
Flexible bottomed culture plate used with Arctangle® Loading Stations™ to provide uniaxial strain to cells in monolayer culture.
Please note: Tissue Train
® system includes Arctangle® Loading Stations™, but they are also available separately.

Culture Plates for Flexcell's® Compression System.
 

      
BioPress™ culture plate with acrylic pistons adhered to the silicone elastomer well bottom, foam sample holders (far left), and stationary platens (left of plate).

6-well BioPress™ Culture Plates
Culture plate for use with the Compression system.
Each well contains an acrylic piston used with a stationary platen (supplied with the Compression system, not included with the culture plates) to deform 3D tissue samples or cell seeded constructs using the Compression system.
The ring foam holders keep samples confined to central region of each well.

StagePresser™ Membranes
Round flexible silicone rubber membranes used as a flexible growth surface for the StagePresser™
.
Each membrane contains an acrylic piston which is compressed against a stationary platen on the StagePresser™ device to deform 3D tissue samples or cell-seeded constructs. Ring foam holders keep samples confined to central region of each membrane.
