Chondrons prepared from articular cartilage were cultured in 3-D Life Dextran-PEG Hydrogels modified with 3-D Life RGD Peptide in a specific architectural design. The resulting 3D tissue constructs were mechanically characterized. Application: Tissue engineering. Cells Used: chondrons derived from articular cartilage. Methods used: Live-dead staining; compression loading.
