Integriculture uses a "Coculture" approach for producing their cellular agricultural products. They have made a cell culturing system that grows muscles cells and liver cells in a connected bioreactor. The liver cells are capable of producing growth factors needed by the muscle cells, and the transfer of the growth factors to the muscle cells is taken care of by Integriculture's coculture bioreactor. These coculturing techniques allows Integriculture to significantly lower the cost of producing clean meat using cellular agricultural techniques. Coculturing is a major part of the "Culnet System" being employed by Integriculture for the large scale management of cell cultures at industrial scales. Integriculture plans on producing culturednon-food meatcellular agriculture products in 2020 at their first commercial plant in Tokyo.
