EBERS develops, manufactures and commercializes devices for research in cell culture, with special emphasis in the field of bioreactors and culture chambers for tissue engineering. Such bioreactors try to reproduce in an in-vitro culture environment some of the conditions which cells experience when growing in-vivo by using two different approaches: the application of controlled flow rates or the direct deformation of the scaffolds in which cells are seeded.
The TEB series bioreactors allows applying a wide variety of flow profiles on the cultures. Used in combination with any of the available EBERS culture chambers, it allows creating both perfusion and perifusion conditions to culture cells on porous bone-type scaffolds as well as on cylindrical vessel-type scaffolds. The TC-3 bioreactor allows applying direct compression on the scaffolds to simulate in the culture the deformation occurring in the in-vivo tissues. Tension and compression can be alternatively applied to simulate the growing conditions in ligament, tendon or bone scaffolds. Moreover, our experienced engineering offers a consultancy service for the adaptation bioreactors and culture chambers to the particular demands of each researcher.
