InFlow is an incubator-compatible modular perfusion bioreactor for a controlled, bidirectional and interstitial perfusion of up to 9 cell-seeded scaffolds with culture medium. InFlow is ideal for general purpose uses and is particularly suitable for the long-term culture of cylindrical fragments of BONE and CARTILAGE tissues.
InFlow perfusion bioreactor is equipped with 1 to 3 modules with up to 9 different perfusion lines. Every single line is:
– Hydraulically independent – ensures equal perfusion conditions between lines, possibility of flexible experimental design with sample triplicates and/or time course studies.
– Biologically independent – ideal for preventing cross-contamination.
– Characterised by a by-pass circuit which by-passes the culture chamber for a fast priming of the circuit.
Each line presents a medium reservoir which ensures culture medium oxygenation through the presence of a hydrophobic filter and medium sampling thanks to a Luer lock septum. Additionally, the circuit is made of silicone platinum cured tubing for culture medium oxygenation, pH balancing and minimum priming volume.
