Abstract

Recent interests in process methodologies possessing the ability for forming scaffolds have gained a great deal of scientific attention. Essentially this has resulted from the realization that these constructs have much utility in the life sciences. In this letter, we elucidate a novel and versatile scaffold process fabrication methodology with a concentric jetting process that shows tremendous possibilities for forming stable composite scaffolds. Our studies combine a specially formulated medical grade PDMS polydimethylsiloxane medium together with this concentric jetting process demonstrating significant possibilities for controlled composite scaffold formation and deposition. Hence the results presented elucidate promising opportunities for using these scaffolds in the biomedical areas of research.
