Now you can build…..






A biofabricator to inspire the next generation of scientist to unleash future biological revolution.  The perfect tool for constructing materials volume elements by volume elements at nano scale. Researchers at IJN-UTM have now been able to go beyond integrating form and function to create 3-dimensional biological constructs for multifunctional use.

Adeli (2016): Conductive Polylactic Acid/Polyaniline Porous Scaffold via Freeze Extraction for Potential Biomedical Applications, Soft Materials


This paper reports for the first time a simple yet effective method of fabricating a conductive and highly porous scaffold material made up of polylactic acid (PLA) and conducting polyaniline (PANI). The electrical percolation state was successfully obtained at 3 wt% of PANI inclusions and reached a conductivity level of useable tissue engineering applications at 4 wt%. In addition, preliminary bioactivity test results indicated that the protonating agent could formed chelate at the scaffold surface leading to good in vitro apatite forming ability during biomimetic immersion. This new conductive scaffold has potential as a suitable biomedical material that requires electrical conductivity.
