IVS InsertsIVS Inserts™ allow the growth of 3D tissue constructs in a standard 8-well chambered coverglass. Suspended tissues form across the support bars allowing measurement of mechanical contractility and stiffness using the Palpator™ tissue mechanics analyzer.

Tissues in culture can be read on plate readers and observed under a microscope through the coverglass bottom. The removable tissues can also be used in tissue construct implantation studies.
