Cardiac tissue engineering presents a challenge due to the complexity of the muscle tissue and the need for multiple signals to induce tissue regeneration in vitro. We investigated the effects of compression (1 Hz, 15% strain) combined with fluid shear stress (10(-2) -10(-1) dynes/cm(2) ) provided by medium perfusion on the outcome of cardiac tissue(More)
We developed a novel perfusion bioreactor that is capable of cultivating multiple 3-dimensional (3D) cellular constructs in one flow chamber with a total cross-section area of 20 cm(2). Two unique features integrated into the bioreactor provided a homogenous fluid flow along the bioreactor cross-section and maximal exposure of the cellular constructs to the(More)
