When we learn how our products are being used to move science forward, it’s exciting. You have to check out this unique research project that uses our Masterflex® peristaltic pumps. One of our colleagues in the UK shared this video clip from the BBC Series, The Human Body: Secrets of Your Life Revealed. In this clip from Series 1, Grow, a Harvard researcher is using the Masterflex L/S® with the Easy-Load® II pump head to try to lab grow a human heart for transplant. He is using a heart that was donated for research. Apparently, trying to grow a human heart from scratch is nearly impossible given the complexity of the heart, according to the information provided from the BBC video clip. To learn more about this research, view the video clip here.
