Paper Abstract

Current efforts in tissue engineering target the growth of 3D volumes of tissue cultures in bioreactor conditions. Fluorescence optical tomography has the potential to monitor cells viability and tissue growth non-destructively directly within the bioreactor via bio-molecular fluorescent labelling strategies. We currently work on developing the imaging instrumentation for tissue cultures in bioreactor conditions. Previously, we localized in 3D thin fluorescent-labelled capillaries in a cylindrically shaped bioreactor phantom containing a diffusive medium with our time-of-flight localization technique. Here, we present our first reconstruction results of the spatial distribution of fluorophore concentrations for labelled capillaries embedded in a bioreactor phantom.
