Summary

A cell (100) for making an anisotropic-structured product from a protein starting material, the cell (100) comprising an inner member (110) and an outer member (120) arranged concentrically along a longitudinal axis (180) to define together a chamber (150) for holding the starting material, wherein the inner member (110) and the outer member (120) are rotatable relative each other about the longitudinal axis (180) for providing the shear force to the starting material and wherein both the inner member (110) and the outer member (120) further define for the cell an inner longitudinal surface (114) and an outer longitudinal surface (124) facing away the chamber (150) such that a normal of each longitudinal surface is transverse to the longitudinal axis (180) characterized in that both members are designed to be exposed to the ambient for allowing a heat exchange between both the inner longitudinal surface (114) and the outer longitudinal surface (124) with the ambient to heat the chamber (150).
