Table 1 Flow rates needed for 1 dyn/cm2 shear stress, magnification used and camera shutter speed used for each of the three chambers tested (including the Oligene chamber with the cells seeded on the coverslip). Note: The eyepiece objective of the microscope used was 1×.

From: The imperative for controlled mechanical stresses in unraveling cellular mechanisms of mechanotransduction
