Our products allow you to build your own beating Organ-on-Chip model following our culture guidelines, but leaving you the freedom to apply your preferred experimental setup in terms of cells and culture conditions.
uBeat® Platform supports the culture of three independent 3D microtissue models within a single device. uBeat® Platform is able to provide a controlled mechanical stimulation to the microtissues by means of the patented uBeat® technology. Specifically, uBeat® Platform features hanging posts, whose geometrical characteristics identify different product types such as uBeat® Stretch and uBeat® Compress.
uBeat® Stretch is able to provide uniaxial stretching deformation. It is suitable for culturing all those tissues that experience stretching stimulations in vivo (i.e., heart, tendon, muscle..).
- uBeat® Stretch10 (10% deformation)
uBeat® Compress is able to provide specific levels of confined compression. It is suitable for culturing all those tissues that experience compression stimulations in vivo (i.e., cartilage, bone, tooth ..).
- uBeat® Compress10 (10% deformation)
- uBeat® Compress30 (30% deformation)
Other versions of these Platforms, in terms of deformation intensity, are available upon request!
uBox is the control system able to provide the mechanical stimulation to each uBeat® Platform. By connecting a pressurized air source to the uCase, uBox allows the operator to choose among several patterns (characterized by frequency, duty cycle and on-off timing values) or even to create personalized ones, with a customizable level of complexity.
