Pericytes are contractile cells with a “spider-like” shape found on the outside of the small vasculature. Pericytes play important roles in regulating capillary blood flow and are also responsible for maintaining permeability of the blood-brain barrier.

XVIVO really came through for us when we were putting together animations for the Health gallery of the Connecticut Science Center. The beating heart is gorgeous! They are true experts and we really enjoyed collaborating with them.
