    Abstract

    We have developed an in-silico model of the Kirkstall Quasi-Vivo QV900 cell culture system. The QV900 consists of a series of connected sealed chambers, within which cells can be cultured in a low shear stress flow environment. By modelling fluid flow and oxygen transport within the chambers, we have been able to simulate flow patterns and shear stress/oxygen levels experienced by the cells, and we have demonstrated that physiologically relevant oxygen concentration gradients can be achieved by configuring connected chambers in a particular way.
