Coating of 3D printed PCL/TCP scaffolds using homogenized-fibrillated collagen

Colloids and Surfaces B: Biointerfaces 2022 Volume 217, Article 112670

Background Poly(3-caprolactone) (PCL)/β-tricalcium phosphate (β-TCP) composite scaffolds fabricated by three-dimensional (3D) printing are one of the common scaffolds for bone tissue regeneration. However, the main challenge of these 3D printed PCL/β-TCP scaffolds is the fact that many cells pass from porosities during in vitro cell seeding, leading to poor initial cell attachment. This study aimed to demonstrate the fabrication of a new collagen coating process for optimizing the hydrophilic property and cell-substrate interactions. This method may be used for coating collagen on any relevant biomedical constructs made of synthetic polymers to increase their biocompatibility and cell attachment. Materials and methods…
