direct cellcompatibility assay

The core interest of the department “Biological Characterisation” is the investigation of biomaterial cytocompatibility in order to feed-back on material development. We develop in vitro cell culture models to mimic in vivo as close as possible and examine the cell behaviour under the impact of degrading material with a special attention to musculoskeletal applications.
