Abstract: This research is on the standardisation of perfusion to help increase the survival rate of hepatic insufficiency patients through the enhanced cell survival of artificial livers. Generally, artificial livers are used in the form of extracorporeal circulation with a mounted bioreactor. As artificial livers need to replace liver functions, to enhance the liver cell survival ratio in the bioreactor, the bioreactor performance needs to be improved. To this end, perfusion standardisation is required in the extracorporeal circulation and each circulation pumps should be interoperable. In this study looked at possible standardisation of perfusion methods capable of increasing liver cell survival rate in order to find out the optimal standardised bioreactor. As a result, perfusion 2 control was found to be essential in raising the cell survival ratio and perfusion 3 implementation enhanced the survival ratio.
