Laboratory Equipments

In biomaterials laboratory, manufacturing and development of metallic based biomaterials used in load bearing applications (teeth implant, hip joint implant, etc.) have been studied. In addition, experimental studies on surface activation and in-vitro studies of metallic biomaterials are conducted. Studies are mainly based on the manufacturing of porous titanium and its alloys by powder metallurgy technique and the designing of metallic biomaterials having mechanical properties similar to that of bone. Besides, surface of porous metallic materials are coated with sodium, calcium and magnesium based titanate phase by hydrothermal methods. Instead of structural properties of various characterized coatings, functional properties are investigated by both in vivo and in-vitro tests. Especially, apatite formation mechanism of various coatings are conducted with in-vitro studies by using simulated body fluid.
