Cell morphology of NIH 3T3 cells in AACCH & AACC biopolymers
AACCH & AACC scaffolds (2x2x1 cm) were placed individually in 6 well culture plates (Tarson, India) and ETO (Ethylene Oxide) sterilized.
Figure 1 demonstrates morphological features of the cross-linked biopolymers (AACCH and AACC).
Figure 2 illustrates the FT-IR spectral details of AA, chitosan, collagen, AACCH and AACC.
Moreover the young's modulus of AACCH and AACC were 75.7 and 32.03 respectively.
Thermo gravimetric analysis for the experimental samples AA, chitosan, type-I collagen, AACCH, AACC, GACCH and GACC were illustrated in Figure 3 a and 3b and the corresponding thermal degradation values were displayed in Table 3.
Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) studies were performed to understand the behavior of AACCH and AACC on application of thermal energy.
