Specializing in biomaterials testing equipment since 2005
Mechanical Test Systems
At CellScale, our test systems are optimized from the ground up to characterize the mechanical properties of biomaterials. Environmental chambers and imaging are integral system functions, not afterthoughts. For needs ranging from micro-scale compression to biaxial tension, trust CellScale’s systems to provide cutting edge data. Our products are:
BioTester – planar biaxial testing
MicroTester – micro-scale mechanical testing
UniVert – tension, compression and bending testing
UStretch – precision tension testing
CellScale’s bioreactors provide insights into the response of cells and tissues to mechanical stimulation. We have systems optimized for high-throughput, real-time imaging, 3D scaffold use, and multi-modal stimulation. CellScale also has extensive experience in developing custom solutions that exceed expectations. The Cell-Stimulation products are:
MCB1 – biaxial stimulation of cell monolayers and 3D constructs
MCFX – uniaxial stimulation of cell monolayers with imaging
MCT6 – high-force uniaxial stimulation of 3D constructs
MCTR – high-throughput hydrostatic pressure stimulation
MCTX – uniaxial compression stimulation
MCJ1 – 6 chamber uniaxial tension
CellScale introduces the VitroFlo
A microphysiological system that incorporates flow over cells without pumps, tubes or valves. The VitroFlo consists of a wellplate with 12 microfluidic channels and a programmable rocker.
The system is now available for beta testing. Click here for more information.
I purchased the Cell Scale biaxial device in my first year as an Assistant Professor. It allowed my first graduate student to start collecting data from day one rather than spend the time to design, build, and validate a custom device first.
I have used CellScale both in the classroom and research setting. It was a great tool for teaching undergraduates the principles of mechanical testing with a hands-on, experiential approach. In my laboratory, it enabled us to determine the mechanical properties of a soft biomaterial developed in our lab that could not be measured by other means. It met all our needs, and was easy to use.
