Bioreactors for Cartilage Tissue Engineering

Bioreactors are used to optimize various culture factors such as nutrient transport, growth factors, oxygen tension and mechanical stimulation in tissue engineering systems. Some bioreactors have used mechanical stimulation to enhance the synthetic activity of the cells while others have used perfusion fluid flow to enhance nutrient transport and produce homogenous constructs.
