How can our Microfluid Culture Insert make your cell cultures robust?
Serious problems occur in most traditional cell culture systems. For instance, conditioned culture medium is essential to many cell types for optimal growth and responsiveness, but typical large volumes of culture medium dilute the concentrations of secreted cell factors and thus significantly slow down and de-potentiate the life events of the cells in culture. In contrast with in vivo environments, free bulk flow of culture liquid perturbs local chemical gradients, which may impair signaling and disturb cell behaviors. Resulting assay data may be weak, excessively variable and potentially misleading.
Using micro-fluidic design and engineering strategies, neuVitro has developed MCI, a new model for cell culture technology. With MCI, the free flow of culture medium can be substantially eliminated, stabilizing local gradient profiles of factors secreted by cultured cells. At the same time, the volume of immobilized culture medium surrounding the cultured cells is reduced several hundred fold, which enables rapid accumulation of secreted factors to high levels, accelerating cell establishment, growth, differentiation, or maturation accordingly. If needed, cells can be cultured successfully at very low density. This innovative culture system more nearly mimics in vivo conditions for effective cell signaling and responsiveness, unlike what one sees in traditional culture systems.
