A NOVEL TECHNOLOGY FOR CONDUCTIVE SCAFFOLDS
Currently, there is a growing interest in polymeric scaffolds for applications in tissue engineering, which requires a broad range of technologies for the production of such structures with properties that suit various cell types. Particularly, for electrosensitive cells such as neurons and muscles ability to transfer the electric signal from external sources to individual cells or cultures can be advantageous.
Here we report preliminary data on a novel technology of conductive coatings preparation upon nonwoven electrospun materials based on magnetron sputtering upon with fibers formed upon the ready-made coating. Coating geometry can be fitted to purpose by using masks or other methods.
Results of conductivity measurements and cell viability studies are reported.
This study was supported by RSF (project № 17-79-20243).
