An easy handling of cell cultures can be achieved with the help of the Lab-on-a-Chip Cell Culture
Incubator LOC-CCI 1 allowing for a short and long term CO2-independent cell culture.
The Lab-on-a-Chip Cell Culture Incubator LOC-CCI 1 has to be equipped with a consumable
microfluidic device, the cell culture itself has to be inserted with the help of a pipette, tubing has to
be connected and everything is placed on the stage of a microscope. Heater and pumps have to be
accommodated to the respective cell culture conditions. Either static media supply or continuous flow
can be used for medium exchange or cell treatment. Cell based assays can be performed over a few
hours up to several weeks according to the experimental needs.
