- Studies recently discovered methods for analysis of the structure, properties and behaviour of biomaterials
- Provides an overview of quantitative assays for measuring cell adhesion, scattering techniques for structural analysis, and motility and differentiation
- Focusses on tissue formation using bioreactors and evaluation of cell infiltration
Before implanting of biomaterials and medical devices, a complete testing in the laboratory is essential. The right analytical techniques are needed for testing.
The latest methods for the analysis of structure, properties and behavior of biomaterials are discussed in the book Characterization Of Biomaterials.
Starting with an introduction to microscopy techniques for the study of the morphology and phase nature of biomaterials, Characterization Of Biomaterials enumerates quantitative assays for measuring cell motility, adhesion and differentiation, scattering techniques for structural analysis, and the evaluation of cell infiltration and tissue formation using bioreactors. Other topics that have been covered include studying molecular-scale protein-surface interactions in biomaterials and use of microarrays to determine cellular changes induced by biomaterials, analysis of the cellular genome and abnormalities. The concluding chapter of the book outlines method and standards for evaluating the biocompatibility and safety of biomaterials.
With its eminent editors and global team of expert contributors, Characterization of Biomaterials is an authoritative reference tool for all those involved in the development, production and application of biomaterials.
