This chapter outlines bioreactor design for soft tissue, using a bioprocessing approach. Bioreactor configurations are reviewed, and as bioreactor performance is intimately related to the scaffold, materials and scaffold architecture are described. Mass transfer considerations, bioreactor data collection and how to take a bioprocessing approach to bioreactor design are described, with an example of liver tissue engineering.
