Design and fabrication of a flow chamber for the study of cell adhesion and hemocompatibilty in dynamic conditions
Cell adhesion is a well characterized condition of both biomaterial and tissue engineering research. It plays a role in biocompatibility and the proliferation, differentiation and viability of seeded cells. With respect to hemocompatibility, platelet adhesion and subsequent activation is a driving factor in the failure of blood contacting medical devices. Platelets aggregates are vital components in the wound healing and foreign body responses and display various forms of adhesion based on blood flow. However, the study of platelet adhesion on implantable tissue engineering scaffolds under ...
