Don Whitley Scientific contributed to what has been labelled a “Great show from industry” at the Bioreactors & Growth Environments for Tissue Engineering course.
Held at The Institute for Science & Technology in Medicine, part of Keele University, the course was aimed at industry professionals and postgraduate level academics to provide a comprehensive understanding of using Bioreactors in Tissue Engineering. The course focused on bioreactors and growth environments for tissue engineering, covering bone, cartilage and connective tissue engineering. The course programme featured a range of national and international speakers and topics ranged from stem cell sources and hypoxia to nanomechanics.
As mentioned, the event featured a great turn out from companies in relevant industries who provide bioreactors and other equipment for tissue engineering work. Displayed on the Don Whitley Scientific trade stand was the TC-3 Bioreactor. The TC-3, from Ebers, is a simple, easy-to-use system for creating cell culture experimental set-ups with user-defined mechanical loading profiles. Also on the stand was the H35 Hypoxystation, which allows users to set specific, low oxygen atmospheres in which to incubate and culture cells.
