Polystyrene nanofiber has enhanced attributes compared to polystyrene, due to its extremely high surface area.
Polystyrene nanofibers provide more adhesion as scaffold for cells and tissues at molecular level.
It is particularly suitable for stem cell and 3D cell/tissue researches.
The morphologic structure of polystyrene nanofiber offers perfect surfaces for adhesion as well as proliferation of cells.
Polystyrene nanofibers provide very stable environment for sensitive cell and tissue applications.
Polystyrene is a synthetic aromatic polymer. Polystyrene has been used as a surface material for tissue and cell adhesion since 1960's due to its clearity, flexibility and easily irradiated nature. Polystyrene, however, has not enough hydrophilicity for tissue and cell studies.
Polystyrene nanofibers are more hydrophilic than polystyrene. Therefore, tissues and cells exhibit more adhesion to polystyrene nanofibers compared to polystyrene, poly-L-lysine and collagen cell cultures.
