CellScale Blog

Welcome to our blog page! This is split into different series of stories. Check out the In the Lab series where we catch up with researchers using CellScale systems. Caleb's Corner is where our president pens his insights on the industry. Finally the Product Launch series introduces the latest in CellScale R&D. Enjoy browsing!
CellScale User Publication Highlight: Effect of Halloysite Addition on the Material Properties of Chitosan-Halloysite Hydrogel Composites

CellScale User Publication Highlight: Effect of Halloysite Addition on the Material Properties of Chitosan-Halloysite Hydrogel Composites

Chitosan is an exceptional candidate for implant coatings, wound dressing, and drug delivery applications. However, it has poor mechanical properties on its own and often needs to be reinforced with other polymers, carbon nanotubes or clay nanoparticles. Dr. David Mills and Yangyang Luo from Louisiana Tech University explores the addition of Halloysite in Chitosan, studying the material properties as well as its drug delivery capabilities.

CellScale User Publication Highlight: 3D Bioprinting with Methacrylated Gelatin Upon Inclusion of Chroride Salt and Nano-Particles

Dr. Patricia Comeau and Dr. Thomas Willett from the University of Waterloo optimizes a methacrylated gelatin-based bioink with chloride salt and hydroxyapatite nano-particles. In their experiments, they optimized for viscosity, swelling and dynamic modulus. Their printed result possessed a dynamic modulus similar to articular cartilage.

CellScale User Publication Highlight: Multifactorial Bottom-up Bioengineering Approaches to Develop Living Tissue Substitutes

Dr. Dimitrios Zeugolis is a biomedical engineering lecturer at the National University of Ireland-Galway. He established the Regenerative, Modular & Developmental Engineering Laboratory (REMODEL) and is a Principal Investigator at the Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) Centre for Research in Medical Devices (CÚRAM) at NUI Galway. Along with co-founding a company – Vornia Biomaterials Ltd, Dr. Zeugolis is part of the editorial committee of TERMIS. CellScale is honoured to feature an article done by Dr. Zeugolis and his team in a research that used our product – the MechanoCulture T6.
