Create your own unique experiments using this versatile and straightforward platform
CELLBLOKS® is unique because no other plate platform allows you to study complex in-vivo like cell-cell interaction studies with ease. The interactive LEGO®-like “plug and play” nature of the device makes it versatile allowing you to perform a wide range of cell-cell combination studies. Using CELLBLOKS® you can build complex models by simply putting together different cell growth Blocks in one platform that are designed to mimic both barrier organs and those in systematic circulation.
The platform is designed in standard well plate format that makes it compatible with standard readout equipment and minimizes any workflow disruption.
Cell-cell interaction studies made easy
Multiple cell and organ type co-culture
Configure combinations matrix to determine the interaction of each cell type being studied
CELLBLOKS® system allows you to set-up three-way combination possibilities which means that each cell type in a system can be tested individually, in sets of two and in a tri-culture all within one plate. In fact, CELLBLOKS®, is the only platform that enables researchers this three-way expansion. CELLBLOKS® matrix enables you to identify and select correct cell type combinations for further study at early stage, helping you save time and money.
Quick and simple analysis
Visualise and monitor in real-time
The open top access allows you to monitor the experiments in real-time. Cells can be imaged live by a standard confocal microscopy without being disrupted. In addition, media can be collected for further analysis while the cells are interacting permitting long term effect to be studied.
Easy to set up “Plug and Play” Block design also facilitates modification of experiments in real time. Remove and substitute individual cell growth Blocks from the base chamber at any time without disturbing other cells in culture. This gives you more time to generate data that you need and spend less time in re-setting the experiments from the beginning.
Perform multiple experiments simultaneously in one platform
Each platform has four individual channels to run separate cell-cell interaction experiments all at the same time within one device, enabling more productivity in less time.
Produce reliable data by maintaining similar environments across experiments
The CELLBLOKS® is designed in a standard SBS plate format to work with regular CO2 incubator and readout equipment. This enables you to minimize environmental differences across standard culture vessels and read-out equipment giving you more reliable and reproducible data.
Ready to use kits
We offer BARRIER Blocks™ kit for growing epithelial cells such as intestinal and blood-brain barrier and CIRCULATORY Blocks™ option to simulate organs in systematic circulation (e.g. liver, heart, lung). Or additionally, you can customise your kit.View
