Interested in studing the effects of mechanical conditioning and electrical pacing on developing tissue? IonOptix culture pacing systems can now be equipped with our patented* C-Stretch, allowing simultaneous electrical and mechanical stimulation of stem cell-derived myocytes in culture. Normal cardiac tissue develops from immature cells grown under mechanical load and electrical activity. Grow your cells under physiologic conditions with our C-Stretch, the first commercial system to offer both electromechanical cues simultaneously!
The C-Stretch has been designed to work in combination with our next generation culture stimulator, the C-Pace EM, a multi-channel stimulator designed for chronic excitation of bulk quantities of cultured cells in incubators. As with the original C-Pace EP, the EM model provides all the various EP features such as constant variation in frequency, insertion of periodic off beats, and programmable frequency changes.
