General description

IBI convertible flow cells offer more versatility for biofilm research. The single chamber, measuring 7.7cm3, has a detachable, re-attachable top, which allows the researcher to insert test samples directly into the flow chamber, such as polymers, metals or other materials/appliances. These test samples can then be exposed to cultures of interest by injecting through the septum located on the top of the cell frame. The convertible flow cell has two options for detachable tops, a glass cover slip top or a TCT coated APET plastic cover slip top. The APET cover slip top does provide better surface attachment for certain types of biofilms.

The detachable tops also allow the researcher to coat the glass or plastic cover slip top with a variety of materials: such as seeded cells, proteins, polymer films, and/or ECM for experiments testing the response of biofilms or cells to different materials. As with other IBI flow cells, the convertible flow cell allows the user to monitor the biofilm in real time via standard or confocal laser microscopy. Complete convertible flow cell assemblies and single cells are available, and come gamma irradiated. The devices are single use only and cannot be autoclaved for re-use.
