Abstract

The use of optical coherence microscopy (OCM) to monitor cell growth in scaffold constructs was discussed. The scaffolds were prepared by blending equal weights of poly(ε-caprolactone) (PCL) with poly(ethylene oxide) (PEO) in a twin-screw extruder. It was also demosntrated that an OCM coupled with confocal fluorescence (CFM) detection channel could be used to perform non-destructive imaging of a polymer TE scaffold containing osteoblasts to depth of 250 μm.
