BioFlux™ DCIS – Live Cell Imaging System

Looking for a simple, fully integrated solution? The BioFlux DCIS provides a complete solution for live cell imaging under physiological conditions.

The BioFlux DCIS incorporates Fluxion’s patented Well Plate Microfluidic technology with a fully integrated microscopy system to enable high throughput shear flow assays. The compact, integrated BioFlux DCIS system includes everything needed to start producing publication-quality data- where you want it and when you want it. BioFlux Controller delivers programmable shear flow to BioFlux plates. Covers a wide shear range (0.1-200 dyne/cm2) to address many physiological applications. BioFlux Software provides a simple to use interface and offers complete control over experimental conditions, including dynamic control over shear flow changes.

Automated microscopy station combines high performance, compact size, cost-effectiveness, and ease of use, even for non-experts. The BioFlux DCIS runs a wide range of live cell applications covering biofilms,  Anti-microbial compound screening,  Leukocyte adhesion compound screening,  Platelet adhesion assays, Stem cell assays for kinetics and differentiation, Pharmacology / dose response assays, Life cycle analysis (mitosis, apoptosis, etc.) and more.
