Organ Culture System
Emulate in vivo organ perfusion
The pump allows you to adjust the flow rate for direct blood vessel perfusion.
Optimal temperature regulation of sample with Tokai Hit technology
It maintains highly accurate in vivo temperature regulation with a compact system.
Easy blood vessel connection to organs with Organ Chamber.
It reduces the expertise skill requirements to connect between the perfusion tube and 1.0mm blood vessel.

Everything is ready
for your experiment
After preparing organs and perfusate, all you need is to set priming, vascular cannulation, flow rate, and temperature to start the experiment.
The system components:
The temperature controller with liquid pumps. The smart and compact system achieves highly accurate temperature control. The pump allows you to adjust from priming to precise flow velocity.
Design keeping organ and connecting blood vessels to organs. With unique Tokai Hit technology within, it is easier to connect from the perfusion tube to 1.0mm blood vessels. We already have exclusively designed chambers for rat small intestine and rat skeletal muscle. Also customized designed chamber is available to offer depending on the requirement.
Consumable auto-clave/sterilization tube set. It includes the pump head of the liquid feed pump.
Example of experiment flow
1.Harvest an organ
2. Connect to organ chamber
3. Set to Bioreactor unit

The chamber unit is composed of the Top and Bottom heater which allows you to regulate highly accurate temperature control and allows you to see actual organ/tissue condition during incubation. Does not require a large incubator for only incubation purpose anymore.
With the compact design, it can be placed inside the clean bench and perfusion culture inside.
No more complicated tube selection! We have a variety of tubes available for blood vessel size. Autoclavable tube sets are available for you. Seamlessly connected from the culture medium reservoir to the blood vessels.
Vessel connection tube
The tubes that cannulate to blood vessels.
We have a lineup of tubes with different thickness and hardness depending on the sample.
The Organ Chamber is one of the keys to OCS. We have striven to find the solutions to keep the organ in place and easy connection with the blood vessel. To keep the well organ culture condition, the Organ Chamber needs to be designed depending on the sample/organs, application, etc.
Upon needs, the disposable chamber can be designed for your experiment.
For small intestine, for skeletal muscle
Custom-made organ chamber.
Chambers for rat small intestine and rat skeletal muscle
are also available.
