Abstract

The biocompatibility of a material is crucial in branding it as a biomaterial. Building on the previous biocompatibility chapter, this chapter mainly focuses on the assessment of biocompatibility. The main aims of biocompatibility assessment are: 1) raw material characterisation; 2) in vitro; and 3) in vivo assessment of materials. Figure 3.1 shows a schematic representation of the components of biocompatibility assessment. This chapter will deal with each of these characterisations and assessment methods one by one in the following sections.
