Poster summary

This study investigated the ability of PCL/graphene to enhance the osteo-inductive mechanism of MG63 cell-like osteoblast cell lines. The scaffold was developed using a particulate-leaching process and cultured with MG63 cell-like osteoblast cell lines at 0.5, 1.5, and 2.5 wt% of graphene. Graphene enhanced the biocompatibility of the scaffolds, and 2.5 wt% of graphene exhibited good characteristics over other concentrations. This suggests that PCL/graphene composites may have potential applications in bone engineering.
