The use of stress markers to inform on tissue engineered product quality
This poster relates to work carried out under project HT1 - Cell monitoring techniques for tissue engineered product quality (TE product quality) of the NMS Chemical and Biological Metrology programme.
Advancements in the field of Tissue Engineering (TE) are driving the need for measurement techniques which can assess the ‘quality’ of cells within manufactured living constructs. This presents many challenges as the cells are often maintained in a 3 dimensional (3D) supporting matrix which makes measurement of even simple characteristics such as viability, morphology and cell stress difficult. In addition many approaches for measuring TE constructs involve destructive techniques, limiting the cellular information which can be obtained.
This poster was presented at the World Conference on Regenerative Medicine held in Leipzig in October.
