Equipment within the Emulate Centre
The Queen Mary - Emulate Organ-on-Chips Centre contains a suit of Emulate Human Emulation Systems suitable for running multiple organ-chips in parallel. The platforms enable independently controlled media or air flow through two separate microfluidics channels within the Emulate chip. The two channels are separated by a semi-permeable membrane enabling cell-cell communication and migration. In addition the unique design facilitates cyclic tensile strain (stretch) to be applied perpendicular to the axis of flow to a maximum strain of 12%.
