Perfusion / Temperature Control Computer Interface
Ability to control media flow in a ramping manner for numerous cycles.

Perfusion / Temperature Control Computer Interface

The live-cell microscopy Perfusion and Temperature Control Interface from Bioptechs™ features:

• Extreme ease of use with precise and repeatable control
• Dual or single micro-perfusion pumps
• Flow profile to reduce dead volume delays
• Temperature and perfusion recording
• Data logging of perfusion and temperature
• Multi flow-rate calibration
• Temperature profiling and cycling
• Saving and reloading settings
• Graphic display of events

This intuitive control interface system is optimized for time lapse imaging of live-cell activity. It provides a convenient, accurate, reliable, and repeatable method of controlling fluid and temperature for chemically or thermally induced change experiments in live-cell chambers. It is WYSIWYG on both Mac and Windows platforms!

Computer Control Program Demo

A typical scenario: Ca++ free medium flows from pump [A] at a specified flow rate to equilibrate cells for a selected period of time. Then pump [A] is shut off as Ca++ rich medium from pump [B] starts at the same flow rate as the previous [A]. Pump [B] then accelerates at a specified rate to a specified peak flow rate and holds for a specified period of time sufficient to displace the dead volume of the prior media in the tubing. At this time the flow rate of pump [B] is reduced to a specified rate optimal for imaging. This process is then repeated either cyclically or on demand.
