**NO AUDIO WITH THIS VIDEO** The Kima Pump is a simple to use, iPod Touch controlled microfluidic pump for life science applications including: aiding cell culture (e.g. endothelial cells) under physiological conditions (shear flow) in biochips and investigation of nanoparticle uptake in cells as this movie shows. This movie shows the application of endothelial cell culture in Cellix's Vena8 Endothelial+ biochips followed by flowing a nanoparticle solution over the cultured endothelial cells for a period of time. The Kima pump is controlled by the iKima Application for use with the iPod Touch and iPhone. 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/solution to cells seeded inside the microchannels. The iKima App will shortly be available for download from Apple's iTunes Store.
