Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0060065A1] An object of the invention is to provide a tangential flow, cell concentration and fusion apparatus (12) which includes a transparent housing (24) and a first input channel (1) contained in the housing (24). In the housing (24), a concentration chamber (26) includes a proximal end connected to the first input channel (1) and extends along a longitudinal axis (28). A first output channel (5) is connected to a distal end of the concentration chamber (26). A filter (3) serves as a wall of the concentration chamber (26), is located between the first input channel (1) and the first output channel (5), and extends in a direction parallel to the longitudinal axis (28).
