The new IonOptix C-Pace System is a multi-mode, multi-channel system for mechanical stretching and/or electrical stimulation of tissue and cells. It can be used with our C-Stretch for simultaneous stretch and stimulation or with our C-Dish electrode assemblies and standard culture dishes for electrical stimulation alone. Electrostimulation coupled with mechanical stretch offers a powerful tool to promote maturation of naive cell lines, while chronic electrical stimulation has been shown to prevent dedifferentiation of cardiomyocytes and maintain their rod shaped, striated morphology.
The complete system includes our C-Pace EM chronic electrical stimulator housing up to 8 high voltage boards, our new, easy-to-use C-Pace Navigator software for simple programmability, and a combination of either C-Stretch and/or C-Dish units for stretch/stimulation or stimulation alone.
