Hi Sofie,
Cell-Lining has developed a Flow Chamber System which is designed to
generate defined shear stresses in a flow channel. The cells are cultured
previously on coverslips (which you can coat with different substances like
adhesions factors). The cells could be observed microscopically in the
chamber, so you will see the loss of cell adhesion based on increasing
medium flow rates in the Chamber. Since the flow chamber has a rectangular
cross-section, the flow rates and shear stresses can be calculated exactly.
So, you can determine the physical parameters of loss of cell adhesion.
