The EBERS TEB series is a new line of bioreactors designed for cell culturing under flow conditions in Tissue Engineering research.

Aiming to cover the demands of a wide variety of researchers, the TEB bioreactors have been designed following a novel philosophy in the TE bioreactors field: it has been developed as an open system, suitable for many different applications and culturing configurations under flow conditions.

This new approach is based on the use of a master unit which provides the appropriate culture environment, including temperature, C02 and O2 concentration and culture media flow conditions, in which a culture chamber containing the growing cells is introduced.

Thus, EBERS bioreactors are composed of three main parts, i.e.

  • Master Unit

    Provides the appropriate environmental conditions for cell growing including

    • Temperature
    • Relative Humidity
    • Gas concentration (CO2 and O2)
    • Culture media flow
  • Interchangeable culture chamber

    The wide variety of these chambers that fit in the master unit is the key advantage of the EBERS bioreactor. Some examples are:

    • Perfusion chambers
    • Chambers for the culture of blood vessels
    • Existing own-design or commercial devices for culture flow
    • Custom developed culture packages
  • Scaffold

    As a function of the culture chamber, many different sorts of scaffolds may be used in our bioreactors both for 2D and 3D cell cultures. Just to give some examples, ceramic and polymeric are suitable candidates to be used in our bioreactor.


Advantages with respect to the existing bioreactors

This new concept of TE bioreactor carries a number of important advantages with respect to the bioreactors available in the market. The most important ones are the following

Versatility and flexibility The open design of the master unit, which only provides the environmental conditions for cellular development without establishing any limitation to the shape, size or nature of the culture package which will be hosted inside.
Cost saving Due to its unique design, the EBERS bioreactor is inexpensive compared to similar equipments, which is a crucial advantage in research.
