CytoForm®-200 consists of a 4.5 x 4.5 x 0.15 cm 3D printed scaffold made out of Hyperelastic Bone™ (trademark property of Dimension Inx®). It comes as a large sheet that can be readily cut or punched out to meet experimental needs.
The Hyperelastic Bone™ scaffolds consist of ~90% Hydroxyapatite in the form of 1-30µm spherical particles, and ~10% polylactide-co-glycolide (PLG).
These scaffolds provide interconnected porosity (for vascularization), high bioactivity, easy handling, workability and high mechanical stability. These features make the substrates ideal for cell culture in bone and hard tissue regeneration.
The CytoForm®-200 scaffolds are ethanol washed prior to shipment, but are not considered sterile.
Every other layer is offset in the X and Y by 0.5mm to provide optimal cell-seeding surface area.
CytoForm®-200 is chemically stable in neutral pH, is flexible, but also has compressive/mechanical strength.
Scaffolds can be seeded with cells or cells can also be suspended in a pre-hydrogel material (such as Type I collagen).
