Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/zqr5bg/characterization) has announced the addition of Woodhead Publishing Ltd's new book "Characterization of Biomaterials" to their offering.
Biomaterials and medical devices must be rigorously tested in the laboratory before they can be implanted. Testing requires the right analytical techniques. Characterization of biomaterials reviews the latest methods for analyzing the structure, properties and behaviour of biomaterials.
Beginning with an introduction to microscopy techniques for analyzing the phase nature and morphology of biomaterials, Characterization of biomaterials goes on to discuss scattering techniques for structural analysis, quantitative assays for measuring cell adhesion, motility and differentiation, and the evaluation of cell infiltration and tissue formation using bioreactors. Further topics considered include studying molecular-scale protein-surface interactions in biomaterials, analysis of the cellular genome and abnormalities, and the use of microarrays to measure cellular changes induced by biomaterials. Finally, the book concludes by outlining standards and methods for assessing the safety and biocompatibility of biomaterials.
With its distinguished editors and international team of expert contributors, Characterization of biomaterials is an authoritative reference tool for all those involved in the development, production and application of biomaterials.
Key Topics Covered:
- Microscopy techniques for analyzing the phase nature and morphology of biomaterials
- Scattering techniques for structural analysis of biomaterials
- Quantitative assays for measuring cell adhesion and motility in biomaterials
- Assays for determining cell differentiation in biomaterials
