Introducing: ClinoStar 2
Have you ever considered how to unleash the hidden potential of cell communication
and tissue formation? The ClinoStar system is at the forefront of this scientific pursuit,
offering a solution that raises a provocative question: Why is it crucial for researchers
to embrace the clinostat principle and eliminate shear stress in their work?
Shear stress is a mechanical force exerted by fluid flow on cells. When cells encounter excessive shear stress, they undergo mechanotransduction, triggering changes in gene expression and protein synthesis.
By using ClinoStar 2, you’ll avoid this.
Blog: The majority of cells never encounter shear stress.
Why should yours?
The majority of human cells never encounter shear stress. However, when flowing media past the cells, like in traditional 3D Cell Culture systems, you often introduce excessive shear stress to your cells.
In this blog post, we’ll explore the importance and advantages of reducing the introduction of shear stress to your cell cultures and how you can avoid it.

ClinoStar 2 features
Control the temperature, CO2, O2 (optional), and
the individual rotational speed of the six clinostat axles.
Monitor your constructions in each reactor
through six live feed cameras.
4 to 6 times as much biomass per volume of media
compared to traditional cell culture systems.
The inbuilt humidification system minimises the risk of
infections and secures constant media volume.
