Discover the technology behind our microfluidic products and their biological applications.

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

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 inhibiting bacterial growth.

Chemotaxis

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.

Angiogenesis

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.
