Tomsk scientists created a new incubator made of titanium and nickel for the restoration of organs
«TSU together with the scientific and production enterprise MIT patented the new incubator, for the introduction of cells into an injured human body, made of thin filaments of titanium nickelide (nickel and titanium compound, — TASS comment). The incubator is designed to replace the functions of a human organ damaged as a result of a trauma or a disease. Thanks to the new production method, the new version of the incubator is more durable and accommodates more cellular structures, which makes it 1.5 times more efficient,» the press service informed.
The novelty of the development of Tomsk scientists is that the incubator is made of filaments of a titanium and nickel compound with a thickness of 25−40 μm, and not of a solid piece of metal. Additionally, such an incubator, having the same volume, holds 1.5 times more cells and its service life is 1,5 times longer as well.
