Q: Is it possible to use your microfluidics system with microfluidic chips that I have designed for my own research efforts?
A: Not today, but we would like researchers to standardize their chip design to meet the requirements of our microfluidics system. Please contact us at info@nanopointimaging.com to discuss a potential collaboration.

Q: Your materials say you provide a CO2 port. Why don't you include a complete CO2 solution in your product?
A: Many live cell applications do not require 5% CO2. We included the port to allow customers to utilize their existing CO2 controller.

Q: Can we use different cells for different experiments on various regions of the cellTRAY?
A: No, the cellTRAY device was designed for one type of cell to be seeded. The full solution system was designed to use one cell type per cellTRAY and to deliver various drugs, growth factors, reagents, or other test articles into different regions. The use of multiple cellTRAYs with different cell lines for the same experimental variables is time and cost effective, and reduces risk of cross contamination of cells.

Q: How are the regions of the cellTRAY isolated from each other? Is contamination possible across regions?
A: The regions are totally separate from each other fluidically. However, the individual wells are open mechanically, to allow cells to drop within by gravity. If the cellTRAY is used as designed, there is no cross contamination of regions.

Q: Do the reagents need to go through the microchannels to be delivered? What are the advantages of the microchannels?
A: The advantage of the channels is that media will flow into wells through feeder channels, and the waste flows out through waste channels with a controlled flow rate that allows cells to be fed continuously over several days.
