About the SmartSlide(TM) Micro-Incubation System
WaferGen has developed and is currently marketing the SmartSlide Micro-Incubation System, a first-of-its-kind family of integrated fluidics exchange micro-incubation products that work seamlessly with inverted microscopes. This breakthrough technology is enabling cell biology and stem cell researchers to conduct complex time lapse imaging studies to characterize, differentiate and proliferate cells, as well as grow stem, primary and other difficult to cultivate cells in consistently optimal physiological conditions. These innovative capabilities will allow researchers to pursue cutting-edge research topics that are not addressable with existing technology.
The core element of the SmartSlide Micro-Incubation System is the compact, sterile and disposable SmartSlide-6 Micro-Incubator which is designed to maintain cells at specific physiological conditions for prolonged cell or tissue imaging. The SmartSlide-6 Micro-Incubator allows for programmable fluidics exchanging, enabling the delivery of up to six nutrient media and gas into each of its six individual wells in both intermittent and continuous perfusion modes.
WaferGen has developed a family of SmartSlide Micro-Incubation System
products built upon the SmartSlide-6 Micro-Incubator that offers cell
biology and stem cell researchers varying levels of control over specific
environmental conditions such as nutrient flow, temperature, humidity, gas
and pH. Each of these SmartSlide Micro-Incubation System products
incorporates easy-to-use graphical interface software that allows for
complete walk-away automation. The SmartSlide Micro-Incubation System
