We present a microtiter plate-sized standalone chip holder for precise control of physiological conditions inside closed microfluidic cell culture systems, made from gas-impermeable materials. Specifically, we demonstrate the suitability of the holder to support cell growth in a glass chip, to allow time-lapse imaging of live cells and the creation of a hypoxic environment, all relevant for applications in regenerative medicine research.
