Flexcell tension culture system


Flexcell® Tension Systems are patented, computer-regulated bioreactors that apply cyclic or static strain to cells cultured in vitro.

We designed Flexcell® Tension Systems to help investigators analyze biochemical changes in response to tensile load on a variety of cell culture applications, including muscle, lung, heart, vascular vessels, skin, tendon, ligament, cartilage, and bone.

Application of Uniaxial strain with Flexcell® Tension Systems using uniflex® culture plates


Our Tension Systems work with UniFlex® (Uniaxial strain), BioFlex®(Equibiaxial strain), HT BioFlex® (Equibiaxial strain), Tissue Train® (3D strain) and CellSoft® BioFlex® culture plates.

Applications of BioFlex® Culture Plates

  • Mechanical Load - use with Flexcell® Tension System to research the effects of equibiaxial tensile strain on cells in vitro
  • Softer Substrate - provides a softer substrate for cell growth (when compared to standard plastic culture dishes) which better mimics in situ conditions for some cell types like trabecular meshwork cells (see Aga et al. Invest Ophthalmol Vis Sci 55(9):5497-509, 2014)
  • Lung Injury Models  - Used to understand the impact of ARDS, COPD, COVID-19 related pulmonary injuries by simulating "cytokine storm", hyper-tension and hyperventilation to cells in vitro (See Huang et al., Am J Respir Crit Care Med., 195(5):639-65, 2017; Ke et al.,Mol iol Cell.30(8): 959–974
  • Traumatic Brain Injury - - can be used in studies looking at traumatic injury in astrocytes and neurons, where the injury is produced with a Cell Injury Controller that controls a burst of gas which deforms the BioFlex® membrane creating large biaxial strains (see Ellis et al. J Neurotrauma 12 325–339, 1995; Ahmed et al. J Neurochem 74(5):1951-1960, 2000; Augustine et al. Neuroscience 274:1-10, 2014)

CellSoft®-Adjustable substrate  stiffness stretch system 

Why use CellSoft® soft substrates:
*Match in vitro substrate to native stiffness
*Reduce ”substrate shock“ to cells
* Retain cell stemness longer
Growing cells on soft substrates
influences cellmorphology,gene expression and stem cell differentiation.
Therapeutic applications of stem cells require control over their differentiation. With CellSoft® Soft Substrate culture plates, researchers can match the in vivo surface to native tissue stiffnesses.
CellSoft® is a specialized gel coating added to either elastomer membrane or polystyrene surfaces. CellSoft® substrates are "softer" and   more stretchable compared to uncoated glass or polystyrene culture plates.
