Title: Live Stem Cell Imaging with Microfluidics.
This talk will discuss the techniques and applications of the ONIX Microfluidic Perfusion System for life cell imaging. The novel microfluidic platform is designed to enable perfusion-based microenvironment control for long-term, high quality live cell microscopy. Continuous perfusion culture medium to the cells recreates the physiological mass transport condition for optimized cell health. Thus an ideal growth environment is achieved for long-term experiments from 4-72hrs on the microscope stage. The system enables single or multi-cell tracking while automated perfusion controls washout, drug changes, and dynamic solution profiles. Temperature and CO2 control is maintained by on-chip microincubator.
