A New Four-Point Bending System to Supply Cultured Adhensive Cells In Vitro with Cyclic Uniaxial Strain
We have designed a new four-point bending system by combination of integrate circuit and beam-deflection theory, and conducted a series of experiments concerning cell morphology and proliferation. The system was proved to be able to supply the cultured anchorage-dependent cells with cyclic uniaxial stretching strain and compressive stress easily, precisely and effectively.
