Development of a bioreactor cassette for autologous pluripotent stem cell production

Design Award

  • Tong Biomedical Design Award Winner

Project Overview

Autologous induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells show great potential for use as patient-specific medical therapeutics. In order for this therapy to be effective, a bioreactor cassette system is required, that is capable of providing conditions for growing multiple iPS cell samples from individual patients without exchanging media between samples.

We have designed a prototype that improves the ergonomic characteristics and imageability of the cassette.
