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.

New tissue scaffold tested

By / July 15, 2009

In a paper published in the free, online Journal of Biomedical Science, Chinese researchers Jiang Liuyun, Li Yubao and Xiong Chengdong report positive results from the use of a novel biodegradable composite tissue scaffold made of nano-hydroxyapatite and natural derived polymers of chitosan and carboxymethyl cellulose. They say the scaffold is formed through the ionic…
