Features and Benefits
The SciFlow Multiwell Cascading Fluidics Cell Culture System is a versatile system that enables the application of fluidic motion and gradient toxicant exposure to cell-based assays in a proprietary microplate reader-compatible 96-well format. Time-resolved dynamic exposure scenarios afforded by the SciFlow System is more in vivo-like and could enable more accurate assessment of adaptive vs toxic mechanisms. Moreover, the dynamic exposure scenario allows better prediction of concentration thresholds for response rather than extrapolating from endpoint dose-response curves. The SciFlow System is an SBS formatted microtiter plate designed to be compatible with plate-readers, imagers, and automated liquid handling systems. In order to enable efficient flow of fluids across the plate, the SciFlow System was designed with variable well-heights. The wells are elevated at one end of the plate and subsequently the bottom surface of each well is 0.5mm lower than the previous well. This allows for a cascading flow of fluids across the plate. The Tecan Infinite® M1000 Pro plate reader features the ability to empirically determine the optimal height of each measurement.
