The Quasi Vivo® System consists of interconnected cell culture chambers and a peristaltic pump to create a continuous flow of media over cells. As a result, cultures are exposed to more physiologically relevant conditions, increasing the predictive value of in vitro experiments. The Quasi Vivo System is available with three different culture chambers (QV500, QV600, and QV900) to support a wide range of applications, including submerged cell culture, co-culture, and modeling of air–liquid and liquid–liquid interfaces. Not only is the system easy to set up, it is also capable of closely monitoring variables during an experiment. And the large scale and user configurability of the system allows assays to be performed that are not possible using microfluidic systems.
