Shear threshold?

Could anyone tell me where I might be able to find the shear stress
threshold for various common cell types?  I am currently faced with 
the problem of optimizing production in a bioreactor containing
immobile cells.  If you know of a journal or text which might have
this information, please let me know.  In particular, Bowes Melanoma
cells, but any of the more common cultured cells (plants included)
would be helpful.  Thanks.
