  2. SI-CTS200 has a Rotating Cuvette
    February 12, 2014
    The SI-CTS200 system utilizes a unique rotating bath to dramatically improve experimental throughput. The rotating bath is designed to orient cells in the XY plane so that no physical manipulation of the position of the cell itself is required prior to capture by the grabbing devices attached to the force sensor and linear actuator.   The cuvette rotates to allow for precise positioning of the cells to be mounted. This bath has two interchangeable inserts. The first holds any 35mm glass bottom dish (WPI #FD35-100). When coating tweezers or glass rods with a biocomaptible adhesive, insert a FluoroDish into the holder and place it in the rotating cuvett
  3. Cell Tester Boast Some Ingenious Features
    April 30, 2013
    Physiologic Mechanisms in Cardiac Myocytes and Skeletal Muscle Cells The revolutionary Cell Tester SI-CTS200 is a new research tool for cellular investigation that can (without any changes) be used for one single living cell, for a small multi-cellular preparation and for single or larger skinned muscle strip preparations. Translational experiments from the single living cells to the intact multi-cellular level can be accomplished. For example, using the Cell Tester, the influence of the connective tissue on muscle function can be distinguished from the clean muscle work for the first time. Conversely, skinning allows a direct comparison between the living cell response and a cell, whereby the subcellular contractile proteins are studied with full e
  4. SI-H Cell Tester Opens a New Window to Cellular Studies
    April 24, 2013
    New technologies developed by SI-H offer incredible opportunities for muscle physiology researchers. Up until now, many studies required an entire day to perform a single trial. Now, after isolating the cells, these same studies can be run on single cells in a matter of minutes. Because we are working on single cells, we can test living organisms. Tetanus, cardiac work loops, afterload and constant load contraction studies, calcium imaging, sarcomere spacing, NAD/NADH and FAD/FADH studies can all be performed on a single cell with the SI-H CTS200 Cell Tester system. According to Dr. Harm Knot (staff muscle physiologist), “The new Cell Tester, a novel cell biology research tool, is set to revolutionize the emerging field of
  5. Many Modules for Cell/Muscle Testers
    April 24, 2013
    WPI offers several muscle tester platforms, including the: SI-CTS200 –Cell Tester for experiments on single cells and small muscle tissues SI-HTB – Horizontal Tissue Bath Plaftorm These systems include a Signal Conditioning Amplifier System which is the electronic component of the system. It is configured for a researchers individual needs and comes with the modules a researcher chooses. The amplifier system can accommodate up to eight channels. Current available SI-H modules include:
