Sealed Water-Jacketed Glass Buffer Reservoirs
For long term ex vivo organ perfusion or acute perfusion that requires sterile perfusion conditions
Sealed water-jacketed glass reservoirs are intended for long term perfusion or acute perfusion that requires sterile perfusion conditions. The sealed lid prevents room air that may contain bacterial, fungi, viruses, etc. from entering the reservoir. A small gas flow (O2/CO2) is passed through the reservoir. Since there is a slight pressure in the reservoir, the clean gas (from the tank) will avoid room air from coming into contact with the perfusion solution. The gas exits through small filters on top of the reservoir.
- Available in 2 L or 220 ml sizes, with or without tubing oxygenator.
- All sealed water-jacketed reservoirs include an outlet for the perfusate and an inlet for reperfusion.
- Access to the inner chamber is made through swabbable female Luer locks. Any male Luer or Luer lock or Tuohy adapter can be directly connected to these access ports mounted at the top of the reservoir.
- Sterile air filters allow gas exchange with the environment for pressure compensation inside to outside.
