Innovative Incubator for Organ Regeneration Created in Siberia
April 30, 2018 13:51

This device has already been put into operation at hospitals of the Siberian State Medical University in Tomsk.
The scientists of the Tomsk State University (TSU) together with the university research and production enterprise MIC have patented a new incubator from a titanium and nickel alloy, which is introduced into damaged organs to restore their functions.
“TSU jointly with MIC have patented a new incubator for administering cells into an injured human body. Made of filaments from titanium nickelide, i.e. nickel&titanium alloy, it was designed to compensate the functions of a human organ stricken by trauma or disease. Thanks to the new production method, the incubator has become more durable and now contains more cellular structures, which makes it 1.5 times more efficient,” - the press service informs.
The novelty of the development by Tomsk scientists is that the incubator is made of titanium nickelide filaments with a thickness of 25 to 40 μm, and not from solid metal bulk. Retaining the size of old type incubator, the new version holds 1.5 times more cells and its life time is increased 1.5 times.
"After an adaptation period, the cells inside the incubator begin to function, partially or completely restoring the function of the injured organ and creating a certain therapeutic effect. Over time, the device efficiency gains momentum as the permeable structure gets germinated with blood and lymphatic vessels, and the incubator functions as close as possible to natural organs in vivo,” - the press service quotes Dr. Georgiy Dambaev, a professor at the Siberian State Medical University.
The new device has already been put into operation at hospitals of the Siberian State Medical University in Tomsk.
