Dietmar’s scaffolds have arrived.
Scaffolds arrived via Express Post on 16/09/21
This means that we can do some tests to see how the HBVPs grow in a matrix. The scaffolds include some flat and tubular sections for initial experimentation.
MPCL Scaffolds – tubular structures at varying heights.
Scaffolds in Petri Dish – flat square structures.
I will need to confirm with Dietmar’s group but the notations seem to indicate that the scaffolds are medical grade polycaprolactone (mPCL) with some tubes including a calcium phosphate (CaP) coating.
MPCL+CaP coating – tube structures.
