Gene context of Artificial Organs

  • Approximately 250 historically important and currently widely used artificial organs are exhibited in the Museum. The official opening of the Museum was coordinated with the "Symposium on Artificial Organs: Past, Present, and Future" during two days in November [6].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of Artificial Organs

  • Ionex has the adsorption capacity of 70 mg/g (weight by desiccation) for heparin, and was used in an attempt to remove the heparin from blood-perfused artificial organs, before the blood was transfused back into the patients [8].
