-- The Kima™ pump is controlled by the iKima™
Application for use with the iPod Touch and iPhone. It connects easily to Cellix's Vena8 Endothelial+
biochip and other manufacturer's flow chambers via fully autoclaveable tubing and delivers pulses of fresh media to cells seeded inside the microchannels. Cellix's Vena8 Endothelial+
biochips allow researchers to culture 8 cell monolayers simultaneously over 24-48 hours.
Gladys Verelst, Marketing specialist at tebu-bio (Le Perray-en-Yvelines, France) says: “We are very pleased to be able to offer this easily controlled pump to our clients facilitating their study of cell-cell interaction, cell rolling and adhesion. When used together with the various biochips it will provide the necessary physiological conditions mimicking human capillaries in an in-vitro set-up beneficial for many therapeutical areas.”
The Kima™ pump can be acquired throughout Europe from tebu-bio. Further information can be found online at http://www.tebu-
The iKima™ App will shortly be available for download from Apple's iTunes Store.
