In order to provide physiological conditions for the in vitro culture of human tissue, the Translational Center "Regenerative Therapies" designs and manufactures customized bioreactors. These ensure that specific cell and tissue functions are maintained in vitro for extended periods of time. In addition, special computer-controlled incubator systems provide a suitable environment for the supply of the artificial tissue models cultured in bioreactors. The incubators are equipped with various sensors and pumps in order to keep e.g. constant temperature and humidity, or to simulate the blood pressure.
New drugs, cosmetics, materials and chemicals are required to be tested for quality, safety and efficacy. Using tissue engineering methods, Fraunhofer IGB develops ...
