Characterisation of fibrous scaffolds and grafts

Capability Description

A suite of instrumental methods are available specifically for the characterisation of fibre-based scaffolds and grafts to ensure satisfactory product performance and to aid in product design. Test facilities include pore size distribution, fibre orientation distribution, air and specific permeability, capillarity and liquid spreading, burst strength testing, tensile and cyclic loading properties, bending stiffness, abrasion resistance, vapour transmission, crease resistance and frictional behaviour, amongst many others.

Case Study

Enables organisations to establish detailed quantitative specifications based on technical textile standard methods for medical devices. Invaluable in developing structure-property/performance models and testing functionality during the product design phase.
