Abstract A biodegradable polymer scaffold was developed using collagen and chitosan, in the form of interpenetrating polymeric network (IPN), for in vitro culture of human epidermoid carcinoma cells (HEp-2, Cincinnati). Glutaraldehyde was used as cross-linking agent for the development of scaffold. Various types of scaffolds were prepared using different proportionate mixtures of collagen and chitosan solutions in the ratio of 3:7, 4:6, 5:5, 6:4 and 7:3 (collagen:chitosan). These scaffolds were ...
