Tissue Train® Bioartificial Tissue Fabrication with Uniaxial Strain
A 3D collagen cell-seeded construct (or bioartifical tissue) is dispensed with a pipette into a linear mold created with the Trough Loader™ and Tissue Train® System. After the construct has polymerized, the FX-5000™ Tension System can be used with an Arctangle® Loading Station™ to apply uniaxial strain to the construct.


Tension Test of a Bioartificial Tissue
A 3D cell-seeded collagen gel created with the Tissue Train® System is subjected to a tensile test until failure. Shown here is the construct within the test grips during testing.


Tissue Train® Trapezoidal Construct under Tension with Corresponding Finite Element Strain Values
Trapezoidal-shaped 3D cell-seeded gel construct (created with the Flexcell® Tissue Train® System) undergoing unconstrained tension applied with a FX-5000™ Tension System. The strain values, as determined with Finite Element Analysis, are depicted alongside the strained construct.
