The rotating tubular chamber has been designed to allow seed and culture processes on tubular scaffolds by means of the rotation while culture media is circulate through the lumen and around the external surface of the scaffold. The combination of the rotation movement with the TEB series constitutes a full system for tissue engineering research with tubular scaffolds. 

This chamber can be used in combination with the TEB series, which allows developing:

  • Cell seeding, by means of rotation
  • Culture, simulating the blood flow by applying flow through the lumen of the scaffold

Also culture media in the outer surface of the scaffold can be pumped through an external circuit.

The lumen diameter of the scaffolds used in the chamber can be as small as 1 mm o lower and the useful length can vary from 5 to 15 mm.

Capillar vessels and small tube-shaped organs subjected to luminal flow are good candidates to be culture in this chamber, which is suitable to apply flow conditions and rotation simultaneously.
