SMF exposure of cultures showing the measured and simulated magnetic inductions.

A: schematic representation, not in scale, showing the exact localization where the culture flasks have been placed within the SMF exposure system. B: size and shape, not in scale, of a single culture flask. The centre of the bottom of the culture flask has been designated as the origin ‘0’ of the reference system; the x and z axes were arbitrarily chosen, and the y-axis was perpendicular to flask and outgoing up from the same flask. C-E: magnetic induction values measured (spots) and simulated (continuous black line) along the x (C), z (D), and y axes (E) of the culture flask. Each value represents the mean ± SE of six independent experiments, each done in duplicate.
