For persuing competitive research in the field of cell and tissue engineering, the Ehrbar Lab provides in-house expertise in the following cutting-edge technologies:

Synthesis of Custom-made Tissue Mimetics
Chemical and enzymatic synthesis of synthetic and biological polymers to create tissue mimetics for 3D cell culture, tissue regeneration, and growth factor delivery.

3D Cell and Tissue Printing
Spatially controlled 3D printing of biological as well as synthetic compounds using liquid dispensing.

Human Tissue for Primary Cell Isolation and Expansion
Isolation of potent primary cells from the following tissue sources:

Umbilical cord: HUVECs, ECFCs, MSCs
Placenta: MSCs
Amniotic Fluid: EPCs, MSCs
Fetal Membranes: MSCs, EPCs

Live Cell Imaging
Fluorescence and brightfield timelapse microscopy for studying cell dynamics in real time.

Protein Engineering and Purification
Cloning, expression and chromatographic purification of designed peptides and proteins.

Tissue Histology
Sectioning of tissue specimen and subsequent histological staining for evaluation of in vivo tissue healing and remodeling.

Chick Chorioallantoic Membrane (CAM) Assay
Ex-ovo testing of angiogenic and antiangiogenic factors in the chorioallantoic membrane.

Mechanical characterization of Human and Synthetic Tissues
Inflation device designed to investigate the mechanical behavior of biological and synthetic membranes under equibiaxial stress-state.
