TC3 The TC-3 Bioreactor has been designed as a simple, easy-to-use system suitable to create cell culture experimental set-ups accounting for user-defined mechanical loading profiles. It combines the features of a traditional testing machine with the particular demands of cell culture, with special emphasis on the sterilization of the parts which are going to contact the culture medium, the easy assembling, the sample inspection by microscopy techniques and the straightforward sample manipulation.

The TC-3 permits to work with:

  •     Horizontally and vertically arranged multiple samples.
  •     Immersed and air-liquid interface setups.
  •     Sheet-shaped, rod-shaped and cylinder-shaped substrates.
  •     Tension and compression axial loading.
  •     Simultaneous flow and deformation conditions.
  •     Hydrostatic pressure conditions.
