µ-Slide y-shaped


Key Features

A flow through μ-Slide for bifurcation studies and blood vessel simulation

  • Perfect simulation of live conditions in branching blood vessels
  • Allows flows in two different directions under different angle

SKU: N/A Categories: ,
Special Requirements?



  • Rolling and adhesion of leukocytes on endothelial cells cultured under flow
  • Simulation of the bifurcation of blood vessels for arteriosclerosis research
  • Cell-cell interaction studies and cell-drug interaction screenings under flow conditions

Technical Features:

  • 30° and 45° angles to simulate the bifurcation of blood vessels
  • Easy connection to tubes and pumps
  • Fully compatible with high resolution microscopy and immunofluorescence staining
  • Defined shear stress and shear rate levels
  • The flow is always laminar, i.e., turbulent flows* are not possible

* For simulation of turbulences we recommend oscillating the flow using the ibidi Pump System.
