One of today's major cell culturing challenges is to grow cells with the same properties as natural cells in a stable and repeatable production process. Cultivation using open systems has a higher risk of producing unusable cells and may result in a less efficient production process. The reasons are clear: Each time the medium must be refilled or the cells harvested, the system must be opened. This may lead to contamination and uncontrolled production conditions.
To enhance cell culturing efficiency, in biotechnology increasingly membranes are used as both an attached growth matrix and semipermeable barrier to separate cells from their nutrient supply.
