Focus on Biomaterials: Why surface zeta potential is key

Descrizione:

Biomaterials are materials that come into contact and interact with the human body for a medical purpose. The types of materials range from soft hydrogels used for contact lenses to metals and alloys used for implants. To ensure that a material can be safely used as a biomaterial, it requires suitable surface properties for interaction with the human body.

Join our free webinar to learn how zeta potential analysis and adsorption kinetics can help you to understand your material better and predict its biocompatibility.
In this webinar you will:
- get a short introduction to zeta potential analysis of solid surfaces
- learn how zeta potential measurements can help you to understand the interaction between different contact lenses and the ocular environment
- learn what can promote protein adsorption on titanium implants
- gain insights into how surface charge can help to promote cell adhesion and growth on scaffolds for tissue engineering
