Hydroxyapatite (HA) has been used clinically to treat bone defects. However, modifications of the surface properties of HA could improve and control bone matrix deposition and localized host tissue integration. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of developing a surface charge on HA discs with respect to osteoblast activity in vitro. HA(More)
Whereas the two-dimensional (2D) visualisation of biological samples is routine, three-dimensional (3D) imaging remains a time-consuming and relatively specialised pursuit. Current commonly adopted techniques for characterising the 3D structure of non-calcified tissues and biomaterials include optical and electron microscopy of serial sections and sectioned(More)
We report the key findings from numerical solutions of a model of transport within an established perfusion bioreactor design. The model includes a complete formulation of transport with fully coupled convection-diffusion and scaffold cell attachment. It also includes the experimentally determined internal (Poly-L-Lactic Acid (PLLA)) scaffold boundary,(More)
