Current bioreactors, although suitable for various functions, are often times costly, unreliable and difficult to set up [1,2]. Unlike standard tissue culture equipment, these systems are complex and difficult to operate [1,2]. Due to these limitations our aim was to develop a bioreactor that utilizes common cell culture equipment, is easy to set up and can interrogate mechanical properties of engineered tissue in culture. Additionally, a small footprint and the ability to grow tissue in replicate were desired due to space limitations of standard laboratory incubators. The end goal of this study was to develop a reliable, robust and reproducible bioreactor capable of continuously monitoring force-displacement characteristics.
