Biomimetic Polysaccharides and Derivatives 5 for use in tissue, engineered for effective cartilage repair. Such a physical form of scaffold mainly depends on the method of fabrication process, and chemical and physical properties of scaffold materials. For tissue regeneration the method of cell seeding and distribution within the scaffold play an important role and can dictate cell infiltration into the scaffold. The method of cell seeding selection, either static or dynamic, can also depend on the physical form of the scaffolds.
