Endothelial Cells – Advanced Nano and Microscopic Methods

ECs are seeded inside transparent silicone tubes. Ferromagnetic micro-beads are seeded on the cells and attach to the ECs CSK. The sample tube is placed within a flow unit magnetizer, inside a microscope-mounted incubator. Physiological flow profiles are imposed on the ECs by a computer controlled servo pump. CSK nano-motion and ultra-structure is opto-magnetically measured. Cell morphology is microscopically monitored.
