Abstract
Fluorescent imaging of cells and tissues cultured within a rotating wall vessel bioreactor offers quantitative assessment of the 3-dimensional aggregation of cells into tissue constructs. We present the design of a rotating wall vessel system optimized for real-time fluorescent analysis. The modulation transfer function of our system is found to be superior to the commercially-available vessel used in previous fluorescence imaging studies. We demonstrate dynamic fluorescent imaging of DAPI-stained porcine pancreatic islets.
