Designed to allow the application of flow through the lumen of tubular vessels simultaneous to the application of tension loads. Given their geometry, those samples cannot bear compression loads, so once the samples are campled in the grips, only tension loads will be suitable to be applied on them.
Just by replacing an adaptor, the grips can be used with different scaffold diameters, which renders in a highly versatile and configurable system
The TC-3 system can be operated both in vertical and horizontal configurations with this set of grip.
|Grips for sheet-shaped samples compatible with the TC-3 loading bioreactor system
||From 1.65 to 5 mm in diameter
||23 mm (for the 1/16" connector)
