Polymers can be processed into thin rods, fibers and filaments from polymer melts using one of the four equipments. We have an industrial scale James extruder (> 100 g), a Randcastle mini-extruder (> 35 g), a Malvern capillary rheometer ( ~ 15 g), and a Tinius Olsen melt indexer that can process experimental polymers as little as 5 g. We can compression mold polymers to make films ~50 mm and plastic parts ~ 5mm. One of the two Carver presses is in the clean room for preparing implantable samples. Polymers can be solution-processed by electrospinning to produce fiber mats. Porogen leached scaffolds can be produced using a bench top freeze drier for preliminary evaluations, and a computer controlled Labconco freeze drier. Polymers can be spin coated on variety of substrates on a Headway Research spin coater to make 100 nm -2 mm thin films.
