perfusion culture systems

tube chamber system TCS2c

The autoclavable tube chamber consists of a crystal-clear cylinder to enable a visual control of the incorporated graft or blood vessel closed on either ends with a piston allowing to install vessels of various lengths. The pistons are equipped with two sets of special adapters preventing both turbulence flow and areas of dead volume. Peripheral adapters link the outer circuit to the tube chamber which will supply the outer surface of the vessel with medium, whereas the second set of adapters connects the inner lumen of the vessel with the inner medium circuit. This chamber enables a transversal gas and substance exchange between the perfused graft lumen and the outer chamber volume which is simulating the interstitial tissue liquid.
