***** NO AUDIO WITH THIS VIDEO ***** ExiGo is a microfluidic syringe pump controlled by an iPad mini or LabVIEW software. 4-channels or pumps may be controlled independently. Key features of this pump include volumetric flow rates of 10 nL/min - 20mL/min. Continuous pulse-free flow rates with sensor are 10nL/min - 1mL/min with 250uL glass syringe and 100nL/min - 20mL/min with 5mL plastic syringe. Compatible with standard syringes. The user-friendly software interfaces enable simple programming of flow steps: constant, ramp, step, sine. Applications shown in this video include droplet generation, multilaminar flow, cell adhesion and rolling assays and cell-cell adhesion assays including with whole blood samples.
The Kima Pump is a microfluidic pump designed to aid cell culture (e.g. endothelial cells) under physiological conditions (shear flow) in various biochips and flow chambers, including Cellix's Vena8 Endothelial+ biochips where it is possible to culture 8 cell monolayers simultaneously over 24-48 hours. The Kima pump is controlled by the iKima Application for use with the iPod Touch and iPhone. The iPod Touch is included with the sale of the Kima pump. The Kima pump is placed inside a standard incubator while the iPod Touch or iPhone, as it's controller, sits on the Universal dock outside the incubator. The Kima pump 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. The iKima App for the iPod Touch is now available for download from Apple's iTunes Store.
