1,2,3… SecretCells!

SecretCells® is a unique combination of a microfluidic biochip harboring two independent wells for 3D/2D cells culture and a removable biosensor for the capture and multiplexed analysis of secreted biomarkers (up to 10 biomarkers, e.g.TNF, IL-1β, IL-2, IFN-γ, etc.).

To increase easiness of use and users experience, Nanobiose also developped accessories like an organizer tray and the fluidic line cassettes, to parallelize and rationalize the use of up to 3 SecretCells.

Here are some of the advantages of SecretCells® :

  • Highly versatile: choice of 3D or 2D culture supports
  • Full control of cells exposure: time, flow rate, stop & go
  • On-line capture of biomarkers: no loss of material
  • Removable biosensor: change without interrupting the experiment
  • Increase throughput by parallelization
  •  Connect multi cell types
  • Operated with classic lab equipments : few investment
  •  Timely available results
  • Reduce worklab and handling errors: no handling/storage of cell culture supernatants
Multiplexing up to 10 biomarkers
Run up to 6 SecretCells units simultaneously
