Measurement of solution parameters on sonication decellularization treatment

Abstract We have developed a sonication decellularization system to decellularized biological scaffolds in short time by combining sonication and chemical method. The aim of this study is to investigate decellularization efficiency on the different treated solution parameters. As a result, decreasing of dissolved oxygen (DO) would increase the conductivity and pH of decellularization solution, and decreasing of pH would increase conductivity. We found that the solution concentration has relation to its parameters and may influence the efficiency of sonication decellularization treatment.


Decellularization techniques involve physical, chemical and enzymatic methods. The combination of physical, biological and chemical agents will lyse the cells followed by rinsing to remove cell remnants. A novel sonication decellularization with Sodium Dodecyl Sulphate (SDS) detergent was developed to prepare completely decellularized bioscaffolds [1, 2]. The purpose of this study is to investigate the relationship of different multiple parameter using combination of chemical and physical methods. Different parameter such as DO, pH and conductivity play an important role in maximizing the efficiency of decellularization.


The custom made reactor were design to fix ultrasonic transducer at specific region of aortic luminal side. The aorta were fix using actuator. The decellularization solution were constantly circulate using 0.1% and 2% SDS detergent for 10 hours of continuous oscillation. The parameter of sonication treatment (DO, pH, conductivity, and temperature) was collected throughout the treatment time using multiple parameter meter (HI 9828, Hanna Instrument). Because of ultrasonic irradiation increase the decellularization solution temperature, we put a temperature sensor in the reactor to control temperature at range of 32°C to 34°C.


Table 1 shows the linear regression of different parameter in 0.1% and 2% SDS treatment. All relationship between parameter shows same trends in both 0.1% and 2% SDS where strong relationship between parameters indicates how

a. The Pearson correlation were derived using $!$$ 8419 ,70 - 3/ .,90 30 ,9 ;0 .4770 ,9 43 It is shown that 2% SDS has lower pH and temperature compare to 0.1% SDS (not shown). On the other hand, 2% SDS have higher conductivity compare to 0.1%SDS. It shows that the cavitation and decellularization efficiency in 2% SDS

is higher by referring to DNA quantification (not shown). According to knowledge about the ultrasonic cleaning process, cavitation is factors that must be considered to maximizing the effectiveness of the system. The cavitation intensity is affected by temperature, viscosity, solubility of gas in liquid, diffusion rate of DO and vapor pressure [1]. For most effective cavitation, liquid used must contain as little DO as possible [3]. By referring to the relationship in Table 1, as DO decrease, pH also decreases. So, lower pH contributes to significant increases of cavitation intensity. The relationship of conductivity and DO were stated that as DO decrease, the conductivity is increasing. So, higher conductivity contributes to increase of cavitation intensity. It could be stated that pH and conductivity affected the

cavitation intensity in sonication decellularization treatment. The use of linear regression will help in predicting the parameter that could be used to selecting parameter for improving sonication decellularization treatment. We found that the solution concentration has relation to its parameters and may influence the efficiency of sonication decellularization treatment. This study could be used for further research in improving decellularization of tissues/organs by providing the optimum condition of

SUPERCRITICAL CO2 EXTRACTOR FOR SALE: 5L, 10L and 20L - 2,000 psi Complete Supercritical Fluid Extraction System - closed loop. Our systems are made at our fabrication shop in the state of Washington. Systems available: 5L, 10L, 20L, 100L, and larger custom. Typical build time is 2 weeks. This is not a Apeks Supercritical or Waters Supercritical CO2 Fluid Extraction System. We believe it is a better system, since we use 1/2 inch tubing for the CO2 flow, which is 4 times the flow rate of a Apeks, and up to 64 times the flow rate of a Waters system. We believe the result is faster processing time and better yield from increased exposure to CO2 solvent. Perfect for extraction of terpenes, trichomes, and Cannabinoids. Supercritical CO2 Fluid Extraction is a art, and the operator must have experience and training to obtain results. Go to website
