Mimetix® electrospun scaffolds
The Electrospinning Company manufactures a range of scaffolds that are available in standard well-plate formats. Mimetix scaffolds are manufactured from GMP-grade poly-L-lactide polymer (PLLA) with tight control over key parameters such as fibre diameter and thickness. The laboratory consumable products are highly consistent providing researchers reliable tools for reproducible cell-based assays. They are provided irradiated with gamma or e-beam.
Randomly orientated Mimetix® scaffold
Mimics the extracellular matrix while providing a true 3D environment for the cells to grow. Evaluated with a range of immortalised cell lines, primary cells and stem cells. Applications include: non weight-bearing bone regeneration; corneal repair; hepatotoxicity assays, cancer cell assays.
Mimetix standard scaffold dimensions:
Aligned Mimetix® scaffold
Ideal for cells needing physical guidance and/or where cellular orientation influences cell behaviour and function.Evaluated with a range of primary cells and stem cells. Applications include: oligodendrocytes and myelination assays, Schwann cells, nerve conduit repair, tendon repair, cardiomyocytes, cardiotoxicity.
