Malvern Panalytical has announced its new webinar, titled ‘Capillary Rheometry in the Fabrication of Polymer Scaffolds for Tissue Engineering’.
Polymers are extensively used for tissue repair and replacement in the form of implantable biomedical scaffolds. Examples include surgical meshes, cardiovascular stents, nerve conduits, bone regeneration scaffolds and fixation devices.
Thermal processing is a common denominator in all these applications. Rather than discuss the use of the rheometer to study polymer rheology (on which a large body of literature exists), Malvern Panalytical’s webinar will focus on the use of the capillary rheometer as a tool for optimising the process parameters with a few grams of the polymer before using up hundreds of grams in extruders.
A capillary rheometer is indispensable in the evaluation of degradable polymers that have a tight window for processing. Join Malvern Panalytical for this and more on rheology as it relates to this application.
A live question and answer (Q&A) session with the attendees will conclude the web seminar.
This event will take place on 13 November from 10:30-11:30 (GMT-5:00). Click here to register for the event.
