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…

UAB group demonstrates techniques to electrospin improved 3D tissue engineering scaffolds

By Eileen De Guire / March 7, 2012

A lot of the basics of electrospinning have been figured out and it is relatively easy to use a desktop apparatus to spin mats of a particular material or even functionally graded materials, so a lot the recent emphasis on electrospinning has been devoted to scaling up these systems for mass production.

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…
