  • Publication number: 20190166827
    Abstract: Provided are systems and methods for cryopreserving tissue, particularly cartilage tissue and osteochondral tissue. Also provided are tissue products made using such systems and methods. Certain methods involve combining tissue with a cryopreservation solution in a processing vessel and applying resonant acoustic energy thereto prior to freezing the tissue. The resonant acoustic energy rapidly agitates the tissue with the cryopreservation solution by vibration. By applying resonant acoustic energy to the tissue during processing, the rate or efficiency of processing, or both, may be improved. Certain methods involve soaking tissue in a cryopreservation solution prior to freezing the tissue.

  • Publication number: 20180280575
    Abstract: Provided are systems and methods for treating or processing tissue, and tissue products made using such systems and methods. Also provided are ball mill processing devices and systems useful for processing materials such as tissue. The methods involve combining tissue with or without a processing solution in a processing vessel and applying resonant acoustic energy thereto. The resonant acoustic energy rapidly agitates the tissue with the processing solution by vibration, thereby improving the rate and/or efficiency of processing. The general method provided is broadly applicable to a variety of tissue processing methods, the processing solution and features of the resonant acoustic energy being selected based on the type of tissue to be processed and the nature of the processing to be performed.

  • Publication number: 20170035937
    Abstract: Provided are systems and methods for treating or processing tissue, and tissue products made using such systems and methods. The methods involve combining tissue with a processing solution in a processing vessel and applying resonant acoustic energy thereto. In some instances, the tissue is processed in the absence of processing solution. The resonant acoustic energy rapidly agitates the tissue with the processing solution by vibration. The general method provided is broadly applicable to a variety of tissue processing methods, the processing solution and features of the resonant acoustic energy being selected based on the type of tissue to be processed and the nature of the processing to be performed. Exemplary methods include methods of bone demineralization, tissue decellularization, tissue cryopreservation, production of stromal vascular fraction, tissue homogenization, tissue cleansing, and tissue decontamination, and assessment of microbial load.
