Electrospun Materials in Neuroscience

Our Mimetix® Aligned fibres (TECL 006) were once again used as a pivotal tool to study oligodendrocytes in vitro. Oligodendrocytes produce myelin which plays a key role in the signal transduction by neurons. These oligodendrocytes exist in different populations and the authors investigated whether the location of these various populations correlates with their function. Published… Read more »

Setting Standards for Synthetic Biomaterials

The ASTM International defines and sets global standards across industries; these standards are used to improve product quality, enhance health and safety, strengthen market access, and trade, and build consumer confidence. Standardisation is an important factor in the medical field and being a part of this committee gives us the platform to influence and help… Read more »

Angiogenesis on Mimetix Air scaffolds

Standard and modified Mimetix Air® scaffolds were used in a recent study to establish an improved method to measure new blood vessel formation (angiogenesis). Angiogenesis is an important natural process for healing and regeneration in the body. In “Pre-screening the intrinsic angiogenic capacity of biomaterials in an optimised ex ovo chorioallantoic membrane model” the group… Read more »
