- Xona’s original compartmentalized device made in poly(dimethylsiloxane) (PDMS)
- Optically transparent and removable
- Requires assembly to substrate by end user
Xona offers multiple silicone (PDMS) device configurations. Our newest configuration, the Small Footprint (SF) device, uses a third the number of neurons per culture unit and have two culture units per “chip”. SNDs are the original 2-compartment devices. RDs (round devices) can be mounted onto select glass bottom dishes making them useful for live cell imaging. TCNDs have 3 compartments and provide numerous experimental possibilities. Xona also sells open compartment configurations, including our single open compartment device (SOC450) and the Innsbruck device which has a single enclosed channel and two outer open compartments.
All our silicone (i.e., PDMS) devices require end user assembly. Xona sells the PDMS part only. For preassembled and easier-to-use options, try our XonaChips®.
