BIOreactor ivtech

IVTech is an italian biotech company, that produces advanced cell culture chambers to refine in-vitro models. These systems allow a significant upgrade of classic in-vitro tests, to better represent the in-vivo environment and physiologically-like conditions.

 

LiveBox1 is a transparent chamber designed for inter-connected dynamic cell cultures. LB1 is featured with a flow inlet and outlet for the perfusion of cell culture media. The clamp system provided with the LB1 assures the watertight closure of the system in both static and dynamic conditions (up to 1 mL/min). The system is designed to reproduce the typical volume of a 24-well plate.

 

LiveBox2 is transparent chamber, developed to model physiological barriers (e.g. lung and intestinal epithelium) in-vitro. LB2 is designed for inter-connected dynamic cell cultures and is equipped with two flow inlets and outlets, and a holder to house a porous membrane. The clamp system provided with the LB2 assures the watertight closure of the system in both static and dynamic conditions (up to 0.5 mL/min in apical or basal compartments).

 

LiveFlow is a compact and low weight peristaltic pump, compatible with the incubator environment. Two removable heads drive up to two independent circuits/head. LiveFlow is equipped with a drawer able to house up to four bioreactors. Therefore you can perform up to four independent experiments in parallel. The intuitive and user-friendly interface permits a quick and easy set-up of the system, with two independent heads able to apply a flow rate between 100-450 µL/min.
