Confidently perform benchtop Maestro assays with local environmental control similar to a cell culture incubator. Together with an integrated heater in the Maestro, the ECmini provides a consistent supply of carbon dioxide to the engaged MEA plate to ensure optimal cell health and stability.
The ECmini makes CO₂ control consistent and convenient with uniform delivery of pre-mixed 5% CO₂ via a removable gas skirt. The removable lid creates a dedicated, contamination-free environmental chamber that ensures optimal assay performance while maintaining easy access to the engaged MEA plate for dosing routines. Axion’s commitment to thoughtful design includes the dual-purpose ECmini stand that houses an easily-accessible flow meter and serves as a secure location for the ECmini gas skirt and lid when not in use.
Unlike many other assay platforms, the Maestro’s label-free, non-invasive recording capability supports long-term data collection from the same cell culture. With the ECmini, stability and health of cells in the benchtop Maestro is the same as it would be in a dedicated incubator. Broaden the scope of your data to include time courses and chronic exposure studies on the same culture while having complete confidence in the local cellular environment.
AXION CO₂ GAS MIXER
For additional operational ease and flexibility, a compact, benchtop gas mixer pairs the ECmini to a 100% CO₂ source, eliminating the need for specialty pre-mixed 5% gas tanks. With a 100% CO₂ source (house supply or tank), local environment can be maintained and adjusted to any concentration between 0-15% CO₂ directly within AxIS software. Save thousands of dollars by pairing the gas mixer with a standard 100% CO₂ tank or use a house supply of CO₂ for even greater savings and convenience.
