Randomly orientated Mimetix® scaffold

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

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

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

Mimetix standard scaffold dimensions:

  • Fibre diameter of 4 microns
  • Pore size of 15-30 microns, porosity of around 80%
  • Depth of 50 microns
  • Available in 96-well plate, 384-well plate, 12-well plate, hanging inserts in 6-well plate or sheets/discs

Dimensions can be varied: for bespoke scaffolds contact us
