Hardware

The mCM “mobile Circulatory Module” is the centre piece of the project AlveoPic. Its hardware contains a combined system for laboratory and transport use, allowing flexible transport requirements. A self-designed and developed roller pump will move the liquid through the lung, nourishing the tissue and hopefully increasing the quality of simulating parameters. The mCM is designed to include the nutrition components as well as the lung tissue itself. It will be plugged to the i-Lung simulator when the lung is mounted into it, in order to realistically simulate an actively breathing lung. The thermically isolated mCM transport container allows the regulation of different environmental factors and provides the user with a simple user interface as well as a wireless connection to the telemetric unit.
