ASTM WK43011

    Work Item: ASTM WK43011 - New Specification for Characterization and Standardization of Polymerizable Collagen-Based Products and Associated Collagen-Cell Interactions

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: F04.42 | Committee F04 | Contact Staff Manager

    1. Scope

    This document will address issues related to production, characterization, and functional testing of polymerizable collagens for surgical implants, delivery vehicles for therapeutic cells or molecules, and substrates for tissue engineered medical products. At present, collagens exhibiting polymerization or self-assembly can be subcategorized as tissue-derived (e.g., atelocollagen, gelatin, monomer, and oligomer), recombinant (collagen proteins and peptides), and chemically synthesized (collagen mimetic peptides)


    Collagen biomaterials, matrix, scaffold, microstructure, biophysical properties, tissue engineered medical product

    The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
