How Does a Hollow Fibre Bioreactor Work?
A hollow fibre bioreactor is a capillarized 3D culture system for growing a large number of cells at high density. This enables periodic harvesting of concentrated cell-secreted products, for example, or the possibility to establish 3D in vitro models. Hollow fibre technology is now accessible at lab incubator scale in the form of simplified single-use cartridge modules from FiberCell Systems Inc.. For over 15 years FiberCell Systems have been making it easy and affordable for any lab to scale up from laborious culture of cells in traditional (and very un-physiological) systems and enjoy the multiple benefits of culturing a very large number of cells at high density. Many academic and commercial customer references are available.
