Randomly orientated Mimetix® scaffold

Mimics the extracellular matrix while providing a true 3D environment for the cells to grow.

Pore size of 15-30 microns, porosity of around 80% and depth of 50 microns (can be varied for different applications)

Applications: non weight-bearing bone regeneration; corneal repair; neurosciences.

Evaluated with a range of immortalised cell lines, primary cells and stem cells.
