The power of linear gradients
Gradientech’s technology combines microfluidics with live cell imaging for the study of cell responses in a linear concentration gradient. Our technology is a perfect match for many biological applications. You’ll find some examples below.
Antibiotic susceptibility testing (AST)
Expose bacteria to a linear gradient of antibiotic concentrations and follow bacterial growth in real-time.
Determine if the bacteria are susceptible or resistant to the antibiotic tested by calculating the lowest antibiotic concentration (MIC) inhibiting bacterial growth.
Expose immune cells to a linear concentration gradient of chemo-attractant and follow cell migration in real-time.
Track your cells over time to determine their migration pattern towards the chemo-attractant.
Expose blood vessels to a linear concentration gradient of chemo-attractant and follow angiogenesis in real-time.
Track blood vessel over time to determine if they grow towards the chemo-attractant.
