Equipment used to regenerate human tissue
Who makes it: Harvard Bioscience
Harvard Bioscience, once a manufacturer of scientific instruments, is focusing on the scientific effort of regenerative medicine. The company is researching how the "scaffold," or the organic framework for building a replacement organ, is "seeded" with cells from the patient. This reduces the rejection rate and even provides an opportunity for a patient to accept new organs without heavy immunosuppressive drugs.
