Fabrication and handling of 3D scaffolds based on polymers and decellularized tissues

Journal Contribution - Journal Article

Polymeric, ceramic and hybrid material-based three-dimensional (3D) scaffold or matrix structures are important for successful tissue engineering. While the number of approaches utilizing the use of cell-based scaffold and matrix structures is constantly growing, it is essential to provide a framework of their typical preparation and evaluation for tissue engineering. This chapter describes the fabrication of 3D scaffolds using -two--photon polymerization, decellularization and cell encapsulation methods and easy-to-use protocols allowing assessing the cell morphology, cytotoxicity and viability in these scaffolds.
