Long term stability and storage of acrylic derivatised glucose responsive dextran-concanavalin A gels
The long term stability of photopolymerised acrylic derivatives of dextran and concanavalin A (con A) and dextran and con A mixtures has been shown at 20 and 37°C by rheological characterisation when stored with and without 0.1%w/w glucose. Acrylic gels were found to have a stable complex viscosity for over 730 days at 20 and 37°C indicating that over time the gel components do not undergo degradation which stored in dialysis membrane, Molecular Weight Cut Off (MWCO) 50kDa.
