What is it about?

The gold nanorods (GNRs) embedded alginate-chitosan (scaffold), which was designed and fabricated to produce efficient handling of the cell proliferations. Scaffold embedded GNR (SGNR) and NIR (near infrared) irradiations are developing into an interesting medical prognosis tool for rabbit chondrocyte (RC) proliferation.

Why is it important?

Our system could help the cell proliferation by generating heat for cells. Hence, the present strategy could be implemented for supporting cell therapeutics after transplantation. This implementation would open new design techniques for integrating the interfaces between NIR irradiated and non-irradiated tissues.


It developed an alternative method for fabrication of SGNR and NIR irradiation. NIR irradiations of the SGNR could reach the temperature of 39–42 °C. This temperature could facilitate to produce the photothermal stress in the cellular surroundings.
