SCORPIO - V's BioChip SpaceLab (BCSL) is an accessible platform that enables academic and industry
investigators to automate live-cell culture experiments with sophisticated microscopy techniques
in the microgravity environment on-board the International Space Station (ISS).
Our Team offers experiment design, customization and end-to-end support for BCSL users, allowing the investigator to focus on her research.
Custom microfluidics delivers multiple reagents over discrete time points for the duration of the experiment.
Automated bright-field and fluorescent time-course imaging of cells for the duration of the experiment.
Live-Cell culture systems tailored to an investigator’s cell line and research of interest.
Experiment Design tailored to an investigator's cell line. The BioChip SpaceLab program supports a highly customizable environment with a variety of launch scenarios designed to accomodate a wide spectrum of research.
We support the following methods for spaceflight experiments
