  • Publication number: 20210371792
    Abstract: An object of the present invention is to provide an artificial tissue perfusion device capable of analyzing the interaction between a vascular cell layer and a parenchymal cell layer with high accuracy. An artificial tissue perfusion device includes a co-culture system (C) in which a plurality of types of cell are cultured. The co-culture system has a tubular well part (10) having a culture space (11) inside; a base material (20) having a perfusion flow path (26) which extends in a predetermined direction and is perfused with a medium, and a holding part (23) which opens to the perfusion flow path and holds the well part attachably and detachably; and a gel membrane (30) having a form of a porous membrane and disposed at an end portion of the well part facing the perfusion flow path in a case where the well part is held by the holding part.

  • Patent number: 10624991
    Abstract: The method for producing a three-dimensional artificial tissue is a method in which a three-dimensional artificial tissue extending in a predetermined direction is produced. The method includes: preparing a device including a culture tank having a culturing space surrounded by sidewalls, and a flow channel-forming member that penetrates through the sidewalls that face each other and is suspended in the culturing space along a predetermined direction; culturing cells in the culturing space and thereby forming a three-dimensional artificial tissue through which the flow channel-forming member penetrates; and removing the flow channel-forming member from the three-dimensional artificial tissue and thereby forming a perfusion flow channel that penetrates through the three-dimensional artificial tissue.

  • Publication number: 20110306110
    Abstract: A method for preparing a biomaterial comprising a gel layer which forms a core region, and cells (cover cells) which cover around the gel layer, said method comprising the steps of: (a) bringing a biocompatible oil or a vegetable oil or a mixture thereof with a mineral oil into contact with a solution containing a gel-forming component to form monodisperse droplets; (b) inducing gelation of the monodisperse droplets to give gel beads; and (c) seeding the cover cells over the surface of the gel beads.

  • Publication number: 20110190583
    Abstract: A medical fixed balloon disposed in an insertion portion to be inserted into a body cavity so as to fix the insertion portion to the inside of the body cavity, comprising: an inflation membrane inflated by supplying a fluid into an inside of the inflation membrane and whose outer peripheral surface is brought into contact with an inner wall of the body cavity, the inflation membrane having regions extended with a predetermined extension rate and having a plurality of low extension regions of a lower extension rate than the predetermined extension rate, formed on a line segment from a base end to a distal end along an insertion axis of the insertion portion.

  • Publication number: 20100217078
    Abstract: An aspect of the actuator for the moving body in tube according to the present invention is characterized by including: a first expansion/contraction member which includes a first portion that fills between the moving body in tube and the tube wall at the time of being expanded to come into contact with the tube wall, and a second portion that is brought into contact with the tube wall to generate propulsive force, and a part of which is fixed to the moving body in tube; a drive device which drives the first expansion/contraction member; and a control section which controls the first expansion/contraction member and the drive device, and is characterized in that the control section performs control so that the first portion of the first expansion/contraction member is made to become the second portion by the drive by the drive device so as to change the relative position between the moving body in tube and the tube wall.
