Adapter unit for use of up to six parallel culture chambers.

An adapter plate allows for up to six fluidically isolated chambers, each with a 25 mm2 culture area, enabling simultaneous stretching of up to six parallel experimental conditions within a single Cytostretcher system.

Cytomechanics, unlocked

  • The NanoSurface Operational Mechanics Interface - NaOMI - enables complete control of stretching parameters and cyclic strain protocols for maximum investigative flexibility. Compatible with both Windows and Mac OS, NaOMI software provides a straighforward and powerful user interface for automated operation of the NanoSurface Cytostretcher.
  • USB connectivity allows for easy operation. Software logging automatically records experimental details. Users can program elongation length, holding time, and stretching speed independently for each stretch cycle.
