Optimization of immune and stem cells

Manufacturer: XCell Biosciences

The human body exhibits diverse microenvironments that influence the behaviour and molecular profiles of cells. Tissues and organs function at a much lower oxygen level and various pressures than a standard incubator provide. Especially primary cells like immune cells/iPSCs/CTCs are difficult to handle in standard incubators: survival is minimal if any, expansion take a long time and often resulting in deviated phenotype expression.

The innovative AVATAR™ Cell Control System by Xcell Biosciences is the first commercially available cell culture system capable of reproducing in vivo microenvironments found within the human body, providing physiological pressures and oxygen states to the cell cultures and therefore reliable results.

The AVATAR™ optimizes growth, functionality and/or phenotype of interest.

Accurate and stabile control of pressure and oxygen levels 

Pressure levels: from 0 psi to 5 psi 

Oxygen levels: from 0.1 % to 20 %
