Developing a robust and reliable kidney model.

Kirkstall is working with academia and industry to develop a robust and reliable kidney model. Using the QV600 in liquid/liquid mode, cells can be cultured as a barrier on a membrane and exposed to flow on both basal and apical sides.

Our users have shown that kidney cells (podocytes and kidney endothelial cells) are amenable to flow up to 500 µl min-1. The dynamic flow applied to cells in the QV600 closely mimics the conditions within the kidney, making the Quasi Vivo® system ideal for a physiologically-relevant kidney model.
