Quick start your research on Organ-on-a-Chip applications with these flow cells and their interfacing.

The ‘Organ-on-a-Chip Platform’ is a great place to start for researchers aiming to develop their own organ-on-a-chip [OOC] applications. This platform provides a double chamber flow cell and its interfacing. All you need to add is pumps and materials such as cells and fluids. what remains for you is doing what you are good at; biology! 

The flow cell is resealable and can be opened. It consists of two chambers where flow can be individually controlled. The membrane separates the two chambers.

Micronit does not do biological research on these components, but our customers do! Have a look at the three papers below in which our items were used. These papers show you more about the devices, they show you can do complex biology on them and they proof you can publish using them.

How do I clean and sterilize my resealable flow cells?

Is it possible to monitor oxygen levels?

It is possible to couple Micronit OOC device to commercial optical readers for dissolved gases in the culture medium. This option allows for applications such as the monitoring of the oxygen in the culture chamber.

Is it possible to control the oxygen concentration?

Micronit's OOC device is made of three glass layers. Glass has a very low gas permeability, making the system suitable for controlling gas concentrations. In case you use a syringe pump, the medium must be pre-conditioned to the right gas concentration. In case you use pneumatic pressurization systems, like Fluigent systems, specific gas mixtures can be used to condition the liquids during perfusion.

Is my OOC system compatible with my imaging systems?

The flow is periodically switching between top and bottom flow path.

When the bellow characteristics are overserved: 
- Flow is periodically switching between the collection reservoir for the top and bottom flow path. 
- Displacement of the membrane.
- Both flow paths are functioning correct, the reservoirs contains an amount of liquid that is expected based on the flow rates.

This is caused by droplet formation on the collection tubing. Each drop affects the flow a bit, resulting in changes in flow rates. This can be resolved by keeping the end of the tubing in the collection reservoir submerged in liquid.
