Gelatin-/chitosan-/hyaluronan-based biomaterials are used in tissue engineering as cell scaffolds. Three gamma radiation doses (1, 10 and 25 kGy) were applied to scaffolds for sterilization. Microstructural changes of the irradiated polymers were evaluated by using scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). A dose of 25(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the occurrence of the Maillard reaction on gelatin-based films (bovine and salmon) in the glassy state, in mixtures with low molecular weight plasticizers (e.g. glycerol, glucose and trehalose) at different storage times. For testing, the gelatin-plasticizer films were stored under glassy conditions (Tg-10°C),(More)
BACKGROUND A state diagram presents different physical states of a biomaterial as a function of solid content and temperature. Despite their technological interest, little information is available on protein systems such as gelatin/water mixtures. The objective of this work was to develop state diagrams of salmon gelatin (SG) and bovine gelatin (BG) in(More)
Cell culture on biopolymeric scaffolds has provided treatments for tissue engineering. Biopolymeric mixtures based on gelatin (Ge), chitosan (Ch) and hyaluronic acid (Ha) have been used to make scaffolds for wound healing. Thermal and physical properties of scaffolds prepared with Ge, Ch and Ha were characterized. Thermal characterization was made by using(More)
This work reports on the preparation and characterization of natural composite materials prepared from bacterial cellulose (BC) incorporated into a gelatin matrix. Composite morphology was studied using scanning electron microscopy and 2D Raman imaging revealing an inhomogeneous dispersion of BC within the gelatin matrix. The composite materials showed(More)
Background. Blueberries are considered an important source of health benefits. This work studied six blueberry cultivars: "Duke," "Brigitta", "Elliott", "Centurion", "Star," and "Jewel", measuring quality parameters such as °Brix, pH, moisture content using standard techniques and shape, color, and fungal presence obtained by computer vision. The storage(More)
Biomaterials based on crosslinked sponges of biopolymers have been extensively used as scaffolds to culture mammal cells. It is well known that single biopolymers show significant change over time due to a phenomenon called physical ageing. In this research, it was verified that scaffolds used for skin tissue engineering (based on gelatin, chitosan and(More)
