Publication: Bone Microtissues Made in GravityPLUS Improve Implants

Best of Both Worlds: GravityPLUS™ publication advances scaffold-based bone implant technology using scaffold-free microtissues

A new generation of biomaterials focus on smart materials incorporating cells.  In this recent InSphero publication in the journal Materials, the authors describe a novel generation of synthetic nanofibrous implant functionalized with scaffold-free living 3D microtissues grown in the InSphero GravityPLUS™ Hanging Drop System.  The regenerative medicine strategy enhances the effectiveness of therapeutic implants compared to current strategies based on adding single cells to the implanted scaffold.
