Product description

This book offers step-by-step, practical guidance for the acquisition, manipulation, and use of cell sources for tissue engineering. It offers a unique focus on tissue engineering methods for cell sourcing and utilization, combining theoretical overviews and detailed procedures. Divided into two parts, the first section discusses in vitro cultivation procedures, and the second section covers a variety of tissue engineering applications. Written by leading experts in the field, each chapter gives a brief overview of basic principles, followed by detailed cell culture and tissue engineering procedures that incorporate state-of-the-art examples and case studies. Each chapter includes stepwise protocols for representative well-established methods.
