Presentation Transcript

  1. Perfused Bioreactor with Matrix-Enabled Capillary Scaffold (MECS) Team Members: Allyson Fry Bryan Gorman Jonathan Lin William Wong Advisor: Dr. John P. Wikswo A continuation from 2004-2005 (Barnett, Garrett, Harvill, Mayer, McClintock)

  2. Objective Design a tissue engineering scaffold and supporting microfluidic control system to guide the development of a network of capillary tubes in vitro.

  3. Introduction • Bioreactor • Capillary network • Matrix-Enabled Capillary Scaffold (MECS) • Perfusion

  4. Motivation • Simplified model for disease research • Human system • Control at many levels • Variety of uses http://www.kids4research.org/mouse%20in%20hand%20facing%20left.jpg

  7. Overall Superstructure

  8. Fractal pattern of vasculature

  9. Matrix-Enabled Capillary Scaffold

  10. Use two-layer photolithography to create mold of ‘egg crate’ design Use soft lithography to create a PDMS stamp Use stamp to deposit a sacrificial layer between two layers of collagen Fabrication Strategy

  11. Overall fluidics

  12. Pumps and LabVIEW

  13. Main Control Program Histories of graph values Graphs pH ranges PID coefficients pH sensor settings Pump settings

  14. Main control program

  15. Project Goals • Model a complete microvascular network • Support cellular processes • Allow evaluation of molecular mechanisms • Provide environment for endothelial cell differentiation • Facilitate formation of stable tubular structures • Support a flow of perfusate
