ABSTRACT OF THE DISCLOSURE The growth of cells in vitro on semi-permeable, tube-shapedmembranes or capillaries is disclosed. Cells are initiallyallowed to settle onto the outer surfaces of the membranes in anutrient medium environment while the membranes are continuouslyperfused by oxygenated nutrient medium flowing through themembranes. Nutrient substances diffuse from the the perfusingmedium through the membrane wall and into the cells, while cellproducts diffuse from the cell through the membrane wall intothe perfusate from which the cell products may be recovered.
