NEW 3D Bioreactor Systems
for Regenerative Medicine

Bioreactor for Hollow Organs, Bronchus,
Trachea & Blood Vessels
 
  ORGANizer™ Series Model 100 “In Breath”
 
 
 
  • Facilitates cell seeding procedures on both sides of a 3D tubular matrix, ensuring homogeneous plating
  • Allow seeding and culturing of different cell types on either side of the tubular scaffold
  • Enhance oxygenation of the culture medium and mass transport (oxygen, nutrients and catabolites) between the medium and the adhering cells
  • Stimulates the cells with hydrodynamic stimuli, favoring the metabolic activity and the differentiation process
  • Allows the achievement and maintenance of sterility and other criteria of Good Laboratory Practice (GLP), simplicity and convenience
  • Permits the possibility of automation and scale-up/-out
 

For the Development of Tissue-Engineered Hollow Organs

In Breath is a rotating double-chamber bioreactor designed for cell seeding and culturing on both surfaces of a tubular matrix and includes rotatory movement of the scaffold around its longitudinal axis. A polymeric culture chamber houses the biologic sample and the medium for the whole culture period. Cylindrical scaffold holders are constructed with working ends of different diameter - to house matrices of diverse dimensions - and a central portion of smaller diameter to expose the luminal surface of the matrix for cell seeding and culturing. A co-axial conduit links the inner chamber to the external environment through an appropriate interface at the chamber wall which provides access to seed and feed the luminal surface of the construct. Secondary elements moving with the scaffold holder induce continuous mixing of the culture medium to increase oxygenation and mass transport. The cell/matrix construct is moved by a DC motor (0-5 rpm adjustable) separated from the culture compartments. The connection between the motion unit and the culture chamber allows the first to remain in the incubator for the whole culture period, moving the chamber independently every time is needed (i.e. sampling, medium exchange). An external control unit regulates and monitors rotation. Autoclavability, ease of handling under sterile conditions, reliability and precision ensure the full compatibility of the device with the GLP rules (Good Laboratory Practice).

The IH-9 utilizes the proven architecture of our smaller IH-5 to set the standard for isolated heart perfusion in minipigs and small domestic pigs. Engineered for the increased flow produced by these species, the IH-9 offers ultimate perfusion stability and real physiological conditions for longer, more relevant recordings with fewer artifacts.

Both Langendorff and Working Heart versions allow a choice of measurement capabilities with dedicated capability packages available for specialized applications.

Perfusion of such larger hearts creates the opportunity for detailed study of cardioplegia and reperfusion after cardioplegia. With dedicated transducers, electrodes, positioners, amplifiers and software for a complete cardiac electro?physiology workstation, the IH-9 allows cardiovascular studies as well as measurement and analysis of multiple ECG and MAP signals.

Additional Options Include

  • Transducers, probes and amplifiers for: realtime flow, isovolumetric LVP,
    temperature etc... (see section I)
  • Dedicated holder for measurement of MAP-potentials and ECG (see page K14)
  • Dedicated optional perfusion circuit for additional perfusion with eg. perfluorcarbon

    (see pages K65 to K75

System Description

The functional principle of the IH-9 is the same as for the IH-SR and IH-5 The IH-9 is improved for low volume and high environment stability.

All of the components are mounted on the main heart cover chamber, except for the pumps, the oxygenator, the thermostatic circulator and the PLUGSYS amplifier system. Special attention has been made to ensure that all critical connecting tubing are maintained short, thus avoiding any cooling through a temperature gradient to ambient temperature and any system given flow resistances.

The key part of the system is the unique aortic block which is the interface between the heart and the IH-9. The bubble trap, compliance chamber, patented flow resistance membrane, infusion and measurement ports are all integrated into this single specialized component.

The modular nature of the IH-9 allows the system to evolve along with your research. A Langendorff system can easily be upgraded to full Working Heart; and any IH-9 can be upgraded with special purpose capabilites like multi-channel ECG and MAP for a complete cardiac electrophysiology workstation.

The connection to the heart is made through interchangeable aortic cannulae and atrial cannulae in working heart extension. The heart chamber acts as reservoir and the perfusate containing erythrocytes is oxygenated by a special membrane oxygenator. In the Langendorff mode, heart contractility is measured using a balloon inserted into the left ventricle and connected to a pressure transducer.

Additional equipment required: thermocirculator, peristaltic pumps, transducers, monitoring system setup using the PLUGSYS Amplifier System. Data acquisition and Evaluation using ISOHEART software. See pages K79 to K80.

Cardioplegia Option

A special option allows heart transplantation and cardioplegia studies. With this option the heart can be perfused from a second perfusion circuit in retrograde mode using a different perfusion solution e.g. perfluocarbon emulsion. Cardioplegia solutions are injected or infused via a dedicated port.

Basic System

The basic setup consists of a Plexiglass base with two stable vertical steel columns. The main system is mounted on a Plexiglass panel which is fixed on the two steel columns. This allows the system to be modified or extended to suit different versions or for special applications.

The essential part of the system is the artificial thorax. It consists of a water-jacketed glass chamber sealed by a special cover. The cover is mounted on the Plexiglass panel, the glass chamber is fixed underneath it with two metal clips. The inner part of the cover is the organ holder with the connections for cannulating the trachea (ventilation), the pulmonary artery and the left atrium (perfusion).

Ventilation of the lung is possible under negative pressure as well as under positive pressure (the latter is essential during the preparation phase). The ventilation parameters are controlled with a special PLUGSYS Ventilator, the "Ventilation Control Module" (VCM, Type 681).The ventilation medium (air or gas mixture) is constantly humidified by the built-in humidifier.

An optional operating table with trough is mounted on the base plate in front of the artificial thoracic chamber. The organ holder with the connections for the trachea (ventilation) and for the pulmonary artery and pulmonary vein (perfusion) can be removed from the main cover to allow an easier preparation and optimal non traumatic lung transfer from the animal to the system. The lung is continuously ventilated at positive pressure until it is placed into the artificial thorax. Then a simple valve permits instantaneous changeover to negative pressure ventilation.

Perfusion

Lungs can be perfused by either constant flow or constant pressure. Although constant flow perfusion may mimic the in vivo situation more closely, it has the disadvantage that hydrostatic edema becomes inevitable during vasoconstriction. Constant pressure perfusion permits higher perfusate flow rates since vasoconstriction decreases perfusate flow and hydrostatic edema is less likely to occur.
Can be configured in one of three different perfusion modes:

  1. Constant Flow Perfusion
  2. Constant Pressure Perfusion
  3. Dual System to Switch from Constant Flow to Constant Pressure and Vice Versa

Lung Weight Changes

Continuous measurement of weight changes of the lung is required for monitoring edema formation. This is possible during negative pressure ventilation inside the thoracic chamber by using the HSE-Edema balance LS 30 (weight transducer) (PY2 73-0593). Weight changes induced by raising or lowering the perfusion pressure can be used to assess vascular permeability by determining the filtration coefficient.

Extensions

Several adapters are available to work with ventilators, to supply different air mixtures to the lungs or to connect aerosol nebulizer for aerosol challenge.

  SC-20 Dual In-line Solution Heater/Cooler
 
 
 
  • Heats and cools from 0° to 50°C
  • Compatible with Warner Series 20 Chambers
  • Optimized for use with the CL-100 Bipolar Temperature Controller
 

In-line solution heating has proven to be one of the most effective methods of maintaining the temperature of perfusion solutions. The SC-20 Dual In-line Solution Heater/Cooler utilizes Peltier thermoelectric devices to regulate temperature both above and below ambient levels.

The SC-20 is designed to thermally regulate one or two solutions at the same temperature. Solution temperature can be maintained at 0°C at flow rates of 2 ml/min., 5°C at 5 ml/min., or as high as 50°C at 5 ml/min.

An integral water jacket is used to remove excess heat from the SC-20 peltier device. Running water either from a tap or a large reservoir can be used. Flow rates as low as 4 liters per hour are sufficient to maintain cooling efficiency.

The SC-20 can be used with either one or two discrete perfusate solutions, or with a solution/gas combination. When coupled with a PHC Series Imaging Chamber Heater/Cooler Jacket, the SC-20 provides an effective means of temperature control in a Warner chamber, even in the absence of solution flow.

Each SC-20 is supplied with a TA-29 Thermistor Cable Assembly for monitoring the bath temperature during use, 10 feet of PE-160 tubing and 10 feet of 1/8" I.D. x 1/4" O.D. Tygon tubing.

  Cell Injection System
 
 

Microinjection is a well established technique used routinely for injection of animal cells, tissues and embryos to insert genetic material such as DNA, RNA, proteins and macromolecules directly into animal cells or embryos a cell cytoplasm or nucleus. Genetic material is inserted via a needle varying in size from 0.5uM to 20uM in diameter. The needle penetrates the cell membrane and/or the nuclear envelope. The process is performed, observed and controlled by using a micromanipulator specialized microscope set up. This technique is widely used by researchers for genetic engineering of cells by modifying, silencing or creating knockouts to study gene targeting and function. Microinjection and electroporation can be combined for the transfection of mammalian cells and tissues for gene therapy applications. This highly effective method is routinely used to insert genes into early stage pronuclear embryos for transgenic development applications for therapeutics. Microinjection is routinely used for nuclear transfer applications, cell biology and viral studies.

Warner Instruments is pleased to provide a system to detect solution leaks before they cause a problem. This system is ideal for all environments where leak detection is critical such as on a microscope or in a chemical cabinet.

The heart of the system is comprised of a special moisture sensitive mat that has been specifically developed for detecting the presence of fluids. As little 3 drops of liquid are sufficient to trigger the system.

A simple connection between the moisture sensitive mats and the spill sensor controller arms the system. When as little as three drops of liquid come in contact with the moisture sensitive mat an audible alarm is sounded. In addition, an alarm condition switches the state of a regulated TTL output on the Spill Sensor allowing you to dynamically control attached devices.

The Spill Sensor System is supplied with four 30 x 30 cm mats that can be cut to any size or shape using sharp scissors or a straight edge.
