Abstract

The concept of processing-property relationship has already been established within the discipline of materials science, but its application in biomaterials is still rather limited. While most combinatorial expt. designs rely upon libraries of samples that have varying compns. but (ideally) comparable processing histories, a demand still exists for more approaches to understanding the role of process parameters for real-life biomaterials. In terms of method and process validation of pharmaceuticals and medical devices, there still exists a need for more approaches to characterizing process parameters after material down-selection. Herein we describe some empirical approaches to the systematic study of some processing conditions of solvent-cast thin films, and their effect on cell behavior and protein absorption.
