Ultrasound Idea: Prototype Bioreactor Evaluates Engineered Tissue While Creating It, National Institute of Standards and Technology Study

Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have developed a prototype bioreactor -- a device for culturing cells to create engineered tissues -- that both stimulates and evaluates tissue as it grows, mimicking natural processes while eliminating the need to stop periodically to cut up samples for analysis. Tissue created this way might someday be used to replace, for example, damaged or diseased cartilage in the knee and hip.
