Scientific Image - Hydrogel Scaffold

Linked product
Description
This scanning electron microscope image shows a hydrogel scaffold grown for studying brain tissue engineering and nerve regeneration. Hydrogels are polymers of great interest to researchers studying tissue engineering and nerve regeneration because they are compatible with a range of biological tissues and processes, they have mechanical properties similar to those of soft tissues, and they can be injected into tissues in liquid form. In addition, they allow living cells to assemble spontaneously on the scaffold structure. • SIZE: The image is 100 µm wide. • IMAGING TOOL: Scanning electron microscope
