 The driving force of the system. It generates the oscillating fluid flow of the cell/medium suspension. It cannot be purchased separately.   A rotating rack for easy and correct positioning of U-CUP disposable bioreactors. It can also be purchased separately.   The central core of the system. It is disposable and it comes with 10x adaptors to fit the specific size of your scaffolds. Scaffolds can also be purchased separately.   It provides all what you need to start your 3D cell cultures. Additional accessories (e.g. forceps, syringes) and testing units are also included.

The performance of U-CUP has been extensively validated and certified by scientific publications in peer-review journals.

If you are convinced of the benefits that a 3D culture environment can provide,the U-CUP bioreactor is the essential tool to conduct with your experiments.
