Electrophoretic deposition coats metal implants with glass fibers to improve bone-to-implant bonding

By April Gocha / April 17, 2018

An international team of researchers has developed a feasible approach to add bioactivity to metallic biomedical implant surfaces, using electrophoretic deposition to form coatings comprised of oriented bioactive phosphate glass fibers.

Researchers show axial vascularization of Bioglass matrix with animal tests

By Eileen De Guire / April 23, 2013

Researchers were able to create samples of a vascularized engineered tissued based on Bioglass. An arteriovenous loop was placed in a Teflon isolation chamber that was filled with the sintered 45S5 Bioglass-granulated matrix and fibrin gel with a fibrinogen concentration of 10 mg/mL and a thrombin concentration of 2 I.U./mL. (A) arteriovenous loop placed on…

Limited time only: ACerS/Wiley offer free access to top content of journals and books

By Eileen De Guire / February 8, 2013

This deal is better than Costco’s free food samples on Saturday morning. Through March 31, The American Ceramic Society and its publishing partner, Wiley, have teamed up to offer Ceramic Tech Today readers a no-cost opportunity to explore and preview some of the Society’s best technical papers and books. And by “best” I mean really…

“The Magic of Ceramics,” plus new books on glass ceramics, composites and Ceramic Transactions volumes ready for shipping

By Eileen De Guire / October 17, 2012

If you describe yourself as a ceramic engineer or ceramic scientist, you are willing to be different, and you probably have had the experience of explaining to lay folk (like family) how the things you work on are different from the ceramic stuff the average person uses—whitewares, dishes, flower pots, etc. However, as we know,…

Three new ACerS books on glass-ceramics, ceramic composites and fracture

By Eileen De Guire / September 12, 2012

Bookshelf at ACerS main office. What’s on your bookshelf? Credit: ACerS. I was a student for enough years that this time of year brings on an imprinted urge to own some new books, hear the crack of the glue in a newly opened spine, smell the pages and ink and own the promise of new…

Featured abstracts from EU-USA Ceramics Summit: Tissue engineering, ceramic membranes for energy

By Eileen De Guire / December 8, 2011

Scanning electron microscope image of a bioactive glass scaffold seeded with human osteoblasts (MG-63). The seeded cells are distributed over the whole scaffold area and well adhered on the surface. This image shows that bone cells can grow on and through this bioactive glass construct. Credit: Boccaccini; Uni-Erlangen. Following last year’s successful Pacific Rim Engineering…
