- A bone to pick: Tailor-made zirconia macrocapsules are biocompatible and friendly to MC3T3-E1 cells and can facilitate osteoblast cell differentiation. Cells encapsulated within such capsular chambers are viable and grow well by absorbing the nutrients permeated through the capsule micropores from the outside environment. These capsules are promising as immunoisolation medical templates for bone-tissue engineering.
