Culture Pacing System


A multi-mode, multi-channel system for mechanical stretching and electrical stimulation of tissue and cells 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 [...]

Intact Muscle Chamber


Lying between single cell and whole heart experimental studies, intact papillary muscle isolated from hearts offers unique advantages. Unlike single isolated myocytes, which represent the smallest fully functional model system, intact papillary muscle can be used to study cardiac function within a multicellular context and an intact 3-dimensional myofilament lattice. And unlike whole heart studies, the contractile characteristics of papillary muscle can be evaluated independently of extrinsic factors such [...]

  • IonOptix C-Dish



C-Dish The patented* C-Dish™ works with the C-Pace EM chronic cell stimulator to form a complete system for the chronic stimulation of bulk-quantities of cardiac myocytes (and other excitable cells) in culture. The C-Dish™ is a simple, 2-piece assembly that precisely places carbon electrode elements in a variety of standard culture plates. A ribbon cable connector provides access to the field stimulating electrodes. Supported Culture [...]

C-Pace EM


C-Pace EM The C-Pace EM is a multi-mode, multi-channel stimulator designed to drive both chronic stimulation and  mechanical stretch of bulk quantities of cells in culture incubators. The C-Pace EM model provides all the various electrophysiology features such as constant variation in frequency, insertion of periodic off beats and programmable frequency changes that were available in the earlier C-Pace EP.  Additionally, the EM version allows control of C-Stretch electromechanical stimulation units [...]

C-Stim CMC Microscope Chamber System


C-Stim CMC Microscope Chamber System The C-Stim from Cell MicroControls (CMC) is a superfusion chamber system for microscopy studies. It incorporates several substantial improvements over existing chamber designs. The central innovation is the C-Stim’s reusable chamber insert. Its coverslip bottom is glued in place, which nearly eliminates solution leakage into the scope. The insert is autoclavable so cells can be cultured directly in it. The chamber holder is designed [...]
