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.

non-uniform, laminar shear stress

use application note 18 to calculate the shear stress in a µ-slide y-shaped.

two flow directions possible
